Our iconic collection boxes can be found in shops and other businesses across the country and help us raise vital funds for Guide Dogs.  Although we are always replacing those that are nearing ‘retirement’ there are hundreds of older boxes still in active service in village shops, town centre supermarkets and pubs throughout the UK. 

To celebrate our fabricated fundraisers we would like you to take a photograph whenever you see one between now and 8pm on Sunday 12th of October and upload it to our facebook page www.facebook.com/guidedogsUK stating where you saw it and using the hashtag #standout.

And don’t forget our team of dedicated volunteers who are out in all weathers collecting money with our hand held money boxes – as it is Guide Dogs Week there should be plenty of them around your local area so why not try and get a photograph of one?

However please remember to get consent if there is also a person in the photo.

On the 13th of October a panel of judges will then chose the 3 most interesting pictures* and award the winners with one of the following prizes:

  • 1st Prize:  A special selection of dog toys and treats (courtesy of SCATS in Newbury)
  • 2nd Prize:  A pair of paw print wellies
  • 3rd Prize:  A Guide Dogs umbrella

There will also be an additional prize to the picture that gets the most likes so make sure you share it with family and friends.

If you find you can’t get enough of our plastic pooches why not join our incredible team of volunteers and become a Collection Box Co-ordinator

*For more information please see our competition Terms and conditions.
