Edinburgh Airport chooses Guide Dogs as their charity of the year
We had an incredible year-long partnership with Edinburgh Airport after staff voted for Guide Dogs as their charity of the year.
A host of fundraising activities and sponsored events to raise an incredible £25,000
Staff at Edinburgh Airport held a range of fundraising activities throughout the year including a staff awards ceremony, coffee mornings, bucket collections and a 12 Days of Christmas raffle. Staff also challenged themselves to a number of sponsored events, such as their static cycle 'from Edinburgh to Amsterdam return', where they put together a rota and worked in teams to clock up the air miles on one of their popular flight routes.
The successful partnership raised £25,000 to support our life-changing work! The staff named five new guide dog puppies through our Name a Puppy scheme; Piper, Jet, Diesel, Atlas and Golden, each with a name holding a special significance to Edinburgh Airport.
