In April 2016, we were introduced to a new member of the Guide Dogs WA family. Anthony ‘Tony’ Lightfoot had lost his battle with a long illness in 2014, leaving a gift in his Will to support the work of the Guide Dog program in WA.
His support for VisAbility and Guide Dogs WA began in the 1980’s, and over three decades his generosity progressed from giving regularly to our direct mail appeals to becoming a major donor for some of our significant campaigns.
Guide Dog Mena is a unique kind of gift. The yellow Labrador was sponsored through a Bequest in one generous Albany resident’s Will, and given her sponsor’s middle name to honour her passing. Now, Mena is changing a life.
