Harnessed With Pride To #StandOut For Guide Dogs Week

The historic stone lion on London's picturesque South Bank is standing out for Guide Dogs this week, as it proudly wears one of the charity's iconic harnesses. The gigantic South Bank Lion statue, which looks out across the Thames and Westminster, is sporting the high viz installation as part of our celebrations Let’s Glow for Guide Dogs Week (4-12 October).

Measuring over 13 feet and weighing around 13 tons, it took a special taskforce to create a harness for such a large animal. David Pryke and his team at the Guide Dogs Workshop in Warwick handmade the bespoke design, which will stay in place throughout Guide Dogs Week and will be seen by thousands of passers-by in the coming days.

Just like The South Bank Lion, you can also show your support during Guide Dogs Week and join in the Let’s Glow Dress-in-Neon Day on Friday 10 October or donate an hour of your time to stand out for blind and partially sighted people around the UK.

Why we need your help

- Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind.

- 180,000 blind and partially sighted people rarely leave home alone. Guide Dogs is committed to changing this.

- A visually impaired person could be partnered with as many as eight dogs in their lifetime, and each partnership costs £35,500.

Please donate now and help us train more guide dogs. The more guide dogs we train, the more lives we can change.
