Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss that has a significant impact on their daily lives. Of those, around 180,000 rarely leave their homes alone and lead lonely, isolated lives. Guide Dogs works for a world where people with sight loss are never left out of life, for a world where being blind or partially sighted is not what defines you. A world with enough support to make the challenges of sight loss no barrier to fulfilling hopes and dreams.
I will be blind for a whole day. I will wake up, put on googles/glasses that cut out all light and then not remove them until bed time.
I will face huge challenges like eating, getting dressed, getting to work, navigating round the home and office. These challenges are faced every day by people living with sight loss. I am only doing this for one day whereas people spend their lives with this challenge. This is why guide dogs do such an important job.
PLEASE support me by sponsoring me, and in return I will send you a short video summary of how I got on during the day.
