Guiding Stars

Your Guiding Star can help our guide dogs shine

This Christmas, we’d once again like to invite you to take part in our Guiding Stars appeal in memory of a loved one.

Since 2008, Christmas trees at Guide Dogs centres have been decorated with Guiding Stars. Christmas is a special time to remember someone, and each star we receive represents treasured memories. Memories last forever, and although the stars will hang on our trees for just a short time, a gift made in memory will be a lasting gift which will help to change lives. Whether you’re remembering a person, pet, or guide dog, you’ll help people with sight loss to live independent lives with the life-changing gift of a guide dog.

How to get your very own star

Remember your loved one this Christmas by requesting a star in the post, by emailing or calling us on 0800 953 0113.

 “The first time I met Twinkle was an amazing day; I couldn’t believe she would be there for me and that we would be able to go out on our own. She’s cheeky and loving, and we’re two of a kind. Christmas will be extra special this year, as I’ll be sharing it with Twinkle.”
