Fundraising

We take our senses for granted and when we lose the use of one of them, it affects our life. Losing one’s sight is the one sense most people fear most.

Guide Dogs meets all costs of each guide dog from birth to retirement. This lifetime cost is just shy of £50,000 – this figure includes costs of breeding, training and supporting the partnership which includes all food and vet bills.  There are 210 guide dog owners in Kent and East Sussex who are supported by the Maidstone Mobility Team.

Maidstone Mobility Team’s Community Fundraiser is Kate Hunter and she supports all fundraising in Kent and East Sussex.


Why not organise your own event?

Find everything you’ll need and more by visiting the fundraising pages of our website, or look at our A-Z Fundraising Ideas to inspire!  If you want advice or materials for your event, contact Community Fundraiser, Kate Hunter.
