How the fund raising is going

Hello from the Barney's Long Walk team,

Although the walk ended at the beginning of August we are still collecting for Guide Dogs! We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have donated to this very worthwhile cause.

We started out with £2500 as our goal and this was soon increased to £5500 which was reached before the trek had finished. The total now stands at almost £8000! Added to this is the amazing amount being raised by Guide Dogs on the Dogs Unite 'Match a Mile for Barney' challenge - this is now well past £14000 and as the challenge continues until the end of September we expect it to be considerably more. Well done everybody!

Well, our trek is finished but we are still looking for assistance. As you may know, we entered a Mountain Warehouse outdoor competition to win a further £10000 for Guide Dogs. You may have voted for us in the first round and I am pleased to say with your votes we made it through to the final - well done! We now need you to vote for us in the final round:

* If you voted for us in the first round, could you please spend a few minutes to repeat the process as the count has started again for the final.
* If you have not voted for us before, please do now - it's very easy and only takes a few minutes.

Either way, you can click the link below (or copy and paste it into your browser) to get to our voting page. Click the Vote Now button and enter your email address. You will receive a confirmation email with a further link to click in order to confirm your vote. Until you have done this your vote is not registered. This process is followed to avoid cheating!

Here is our voting page:

Many thanks and I hope we can report we have all won £10000 for Guide Dogs when voting finishes later this month!
Barney, Bob & Jos

p.s. If you want to help in another way with your dog, visit and sign up to the challenge which is open until 30th September
