Guide Dogs Association Collection Boxes { 11 images } Created 24 Jan 2011

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association have produced a 750-strong army of new collection boxes, launched to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the UK's first guide dogs.
Made from fibreglass and standing 80cm tall, the newest additions to the Guide Dogs family are lined up waiting for new homes.
Each collection box weighs 10kg and can hold up to 7,000 coins, giving an estimated annual income of around £400 per box.
"The life-size collection boxes are a vital source of income to Guide Dogs and their iconic design is part of our history," said Jayne George, Director of Fundraising.
The first guide dog partnership qualified in the UK in 1931. Today, Guide Dogs is the world leader in successfully breeding and training working dogs.
Driving the charity forwards is the ambition to ensure all blind and partially sighted people have the same freedom of movement as everyone else.
