For funeral directors FAQs

If a family wishes to donate to Guide Dogs at a funeral, perhaps in lieu of flowers, we can send you special collection envelopes. The family can then give the pre-paid envelopes back to you to return to us, or send them directly to us.

To order envelopes, or to see a sample, please call us on 0800 953 0113 or email giftsinmemory@guidedogs.org.uk.

You can send them for the attention of the Gifts in Memory team to:

Guide Dogs
Hillfields
Burghfield Common
Reading
RG7 3YG

Please do not send cash in the post. Any cheques should be made payable to 'Guide Dogs' or 'The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association’.

Please call us on 0800 953 0113 and we’ll be happy to send some for you to display.
