Fundraiser for Guide Dogs

How would you like to be part of the Guide Dogs family and help people with sight loss live the life they choose? We would love to have you onboard to help with our ambition of a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.
Did you know that we don’t just provide life-changing guide dogs, we also provide advice, skills, emotional and practical support for children, adults and their families living with sight loss to help them live actively, independently and well?
To do all this we need the support of amazing volunteers like you!
If you would like more information, are unsure or need flexibility around the role then chat to us first by emailing and someone will be in touch.
What does the role involve?
Assisting your local fundraising group in organising, promoting and taking part in a variety of activities to raise money for Guide Dogs. It costs £58,000 to support one single guide dog throughout it's life, so without our amazing Fundraisers raising money for us, we wouldn't be able to provide our life changing services!
Main responsibilities:

  • Organise and facilitate fundraising events such as street collections, stalls at local fairs, tea parties, garden sales, sponsored events and anything else you can think of!

  • Attend group meetings

  • Take collection boxes to local businesses

  • Keeping track of what we sell on our stalls at events (including the cuddly toys!)

  • Count donations
    Please contact for more information.

Experience required

Role would be ideal for someone who likes meeting new people and getting out and about in their local community. You would also have to be confident speaking to new people to help spread the word about Guide Dogs!
