Lorna, you are absolutely right. I have been a sponsor for many years. It is also possible to pass your sponsorship to another person as I do. I nominate one of my young relatives so that they may realise how lucky we sighted people are and they can follow “their” puppy’s progress throughout the training.
Guide dogs for the blind do not receive any government contribution; they have to rely on the public for support. So PLEASE if you can, go ahead and give a blind person the chance to make life just a tiny bit more bearable.
