Unfortunately, entry to Walk Your Socks Off 2021 has now closed but you can join us again next May when we'll be walking our socks off all over again! We're sorry if you've missed out on walking your socks off this year but you can still be a super supporter, helping children and adults with sight loss to step out with confidence, by donating to our Just Giving page or taking part in one of our other events

A huge thank you to all the inspirational steppers who have taken part this year! Your support has been overwhelming and we hope you feel proud to have been part of something so amazing! 

If you have any questions regarding your challenge please check out our FAQs page or contact us at walkyoursocksoff@guidedogs.org.uk. If you haven’t already, you can also join our Facebook group to hear updates on how much your fantastic efforts have raised this year and how this will support Guide Dogs.

How your money helps children like Caitlin & Honey

Caitlin was born with congenital glaucoma and underwent almost 50 operations before her fifth birthday.

Caitlin says: “I knew a guide dog could help me be even more confident and independent, but I never expected to gain a best friend as well. Honey puts a smile on my face every day with her puppy eyes and wagging tail. She’s my reason to get out of bed in the morning and have a great day. We’re a perfect match.”

 

How your funds change lives:

  • £50 could pay for fun, tactile activities to help children co-ordinate their muscles and movements.
  • £96 could pay for an eye test each for two guide dogs in training
  • £116 could buy a Training School Kit for one of our guide dog trainers who will teach pups the specialist skills they need as fully qualified guide dogs.
  • £710 could buy a Birthing Kit containing all the essential equipment for a guide dog mum to safely deliver her puppies.
