Charity Support

Bluestar representative with two guide dogs and their trainers

Bluestar's Charity of the Year for 2024/25 is Guide Dogs South West.

We will spend the two years raising funds and awareness to help the charity continue to support people with sight loss in the area – through providing information and advice, rehabilitation support and of course their life-changing dogs. Guide Dogs is the world’s largest assistance dog organisation, and is a charity almost entirely funded by donations.

We have had a close association with the charity for some time because we allow its team to hop on-and-off our buses with their trainee guide dogs to help them get comfortable using public transport. It’s all part of making our buses accessible to all. What many people don't know is that the organisation provide more than just their guide dog service including buddy dogs for children, life skills and trained volunteer guides.

We are excited to begin this new partnership, and support as many people as we can throughout the year!
