Reception Days have been postponed 

Due to escalating health concerns relating to the spread of coronavirus, we have made the decision to postpone the Reception Days. However, we are currently running virtual events and would be delighted to hear from you should you wish to join us. Please contact to register your interest. 

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. If you would like to attend one of our future events or would like to talk to your local contact about leaving a gift in your Will please don't hesitate to contact us

Guide Dogs recommends that anyone who has concerns about coronavirus, follow government advice and guidelines as set out by the World Health Organisation. For additional information, we recommend looking at the NHS website and/or NHS Inform for Scotland.


Come on an amazing journey with us - see our work in action

We’d love to show you just what a gift in your Will could do in your local area.

Our Reception Days are a chance for you to discover how gifts in Wills support our work, including providing guide dogs of the future. You'll meet staff, volunteers and some of our dogs too! You'll hear from a puppy raiser (formerly called a puppy walker), one of our trainers and from a guide dog owner, who'll share their personal and life-changing stories with you.
