The Great Guide Dogs Tea Party

National Tea Day - 21st April

Celebrate National Tea Day with us by hosting your very own Great Guide Dogs Tea Party at work, home or in your community. Whether you love to bake or just eat cake, it is the perfect excuse to enjoy a brew and your favourite sweet treats, all while supporting our life changing services.

Who will I be helping? 

Every day 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. At Guide Dogs, we believe no one should be left out of life. Every pound you raise through hosting a Great Guide Dogs Tea Party will help us ensure people with sight loss lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives. People like Priya.

Priya's story

Although Priya (pictured right) was diagnosed with Retinitis pigmentosa in primary school, it was not until her daughter Lucy was born that she faced the challenge of adjusting to life as a new mum with a vision impairment. 

She'd spent her life up to that point trying to manage and conceal her vision impairment. 

Her first guide dog Sidney gave her the confidence to go out and do everyday things, like picking Lucy up from school.

“It’s quite incredible what Sidney can do. I wouldn’t go out without him as his guiding is completely essential.”
Priya, guide dog owner

Holding a tea party was really fun and easy. I invited my friends round for tea and cake and it was great to see how much we raised afterwards. Can't wait to do it again!
