Christmas tea party

About the Great Guide Dogs Tea Party

Get your Santa hats at the ready for a Christmas tea party like no other! You and your loved ones (pets included) can do something amazing this Christmas and help us change lives for people living with sight loss in the UK – every pound raised makes a difference! So get together, eat, drink and play games in aid of Guide Dogs and give the gift that keeps on giving.

Who will I be helping?

Every penny raised from your tea party helps to change lives for people in the UK living with sight loss like Jess.

When Jess was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa aged nine, her family were relieved to find a reason for her childhood clumsiness. But as Jess got older, the barriers her sight loss created became frustrating.

Jess was matched with her guide dog Kenzie in April 2017 and within months achieved her dream of independently moving to a new city to study. 

We rely on donations to continue our life-changing work and thanks to amazing people like you we can continue to change lives.

Kenzie is my best friend and I couldn’t imagine my life without her. We do everything together. I just don’t think I would have ever had the confidence to cope with University and do all the amazing things I’ve done if she wasn’t by my side.
Jess, Guide Dog owner
