Santa Paws visits Parliament to deliver Guide Dogs' Christmas message

12 Dec 2013

Chris White MP, meets Santa PawsThis year our Christmas cards to MPs had a festive ‘Streets Ahead’ theme to support our calls for clearer UK wide laws to tackle pavement parking, which is a huge problem for guide dog owners and many other people. Over 300 campaigners took the opportunity to include their own messages in the cards to help get our message across.

Rather than just pop them in the postbox, we enlisted Santa Paws and a special "Royal Tail" service, and visited Westminster to deliver the cards by hand.

MPs such as Chris White (pictured) were delighted with the cards, and the messages from their constituents really helped drive the message home.
