Wykamol Group Begins Guide Dog Fundraising Journey
Wykamol Group have taken their first step in helping a blind or partially sighted person become mobile and independent by choosing to support Guide Dogs and raise the £5000 needed for training a guide dog puppy.
After choosing Guide Dogs as their charity of the year, Wykamol have begun donating regularly to the charity and will now be encouraging their customers and suppliers to join them in helping to name a puppy by donating on their Just Giving page.
Andrew Latimer, Sales Director at Wykamol says: ‘It’s wonderful to know that we are doing something that will change someone’s life. We are excited to get everybody on board with fundraising and can’t wait to be able to name our own Guide Dog puppy.”
Once the £5,000 target has been raised, Wykamol will be able to choose a name for their puppy, receive regular reports about its progress during its first year with its puppy walker and even get to meet it before it heads off to Guide Dog Training School.

Siobhan Cullen, Community Fundraiser from Guide Dogs, says: ‘Naming a Puppy is a really special thing to do and we are absolutely delighted that Wykamol have chosen to concentrate their fundraising efforts on that.
‘It costs almost £50,000 to support a Guide Dog partnership from the birth of the pup to its retirement aged about 10. We don’t receive any Government funding for this service so without the generosity of public donations, we wouldn’t be able to support the 4,600 Guide Dog partnerships in the UK.’
Guide Dogs promises to supply every guide dog owner with a dog for as long as they need one. Some people may need six or seven dogs in their lifetime.
