Our Corporate Partner: Citi
We are really excited to be Citi’s new London Charity Partner for 2020/2021.
Our partnership fundraising target is £350k to transform 178 lives by matching and training people with sight loss in London to guide dogs or volunteer sighted guides.
Guide Dogs were chosen from a large field of applicants to become the bank’s new partner after being nominated by Citi employee, Patrick Moran. Patrick, who has been at Citi for 20 years and also a guide dog owner, has a form of sight loss known as retinitis pigmentosa.
“I’m incredibly pleased that Citi have chosen Guide Dogs to be their London Charity Partner, especially as I’m a beneficiary of the fabulous work that Guide Dogs deliver. Citi have been an exemplary employer to me and the willingness to support both me and my guide dog, Yoda means the world to me. The partnership between Citi and Guide Dogs will show what we can do together.”
In the first year of Citi supporting us we are engaging in a range of exciting fundraising activities, challenge events, and volunteering, including bespoke training in sighted guiding for employees. We will also raise awareness of sight loss, eye health and our life changing work.
All vital funds raised this year means that together we will open up the world for more people with sight loss in London.
