Guide Dogs for the Blind

From proceeds collected in 2015 (and generous match funding by the Centre’s Landlord) Jackson Square sponsored a Guide Dog puppy that was named Grace.  Grace has almost graduated now and will soon be placed with a visually impaired person whose life will be transformed by having a thoroughly well trained, faithful and loyal companion as their guide.

Jackson Square continues to partner and support the fund-raising team’s local initiatives, with a particular highlight being their regular visits with their amazing dogs in training.

Home Instead were a new Charity partner for 2019.  Home Instead provide specialised home care for the elderly and offer support to those being cared for and their families.

Working alongside their local team, we were able to assist in delivering a ‘Santa for Senior’ event.  Within his grotto, Santa’s key message was that Christmas isn’t just about receiving presents but giving too and this helped Home Instead raise over 2,000 gifts for local elderly residents.
