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 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.
