The Mayor's chosen charities
For his Mayoral year Councillor Steve Iles has chosen Guide Dogs for the Blind (Medway Branch) as his nominated charity. The Medway Branch of Guide Dogs for the Blind is a group of guide dog puppy walkers, fundraisers and volunteers working throughout Kent.
Having first-hand experience of a partially sighted grandfather and the difficulties he endured and being a lifelong dog lover himself, Steve has sought the opportunity and privilege by combining these two together to support this charity help people with impaired sight to overcome the emotional and physical difficulties they face in their daily lives.
The Mayor will host a variety of events during his year of office.
