Thank you so much for coming to the Isle of Dogs, supporting the launch of a year of celebrations to mark 75 years of guide dogs in the UK. In such an historic year, we want the third Guide Dog of the Year Awards to be the best yet. Therefore, to have you as one of the judges is fantastic, and it worked really well using the occasion to formerly launch the nomination process.
