Rudolph has become a popular figure in the local communities in Leicester since he made his first appearance in 1949 and, he has gone on to help raise more than £300,000 over the years for a number of charities (with the help of volunteers and firefighters). During his time he has had a few make overs to keep him going and now, he is looking better than he ever has.


Last year, they managed to raise a huge amount of money which was shared amongst:

  • Adapt
  • Friends of Sycamore Court
  • Leicester and Leicestershire Animal Aid Association
  • Leicestershire Down’s Syndrome Group
  • Leicester Children’s Holidays
  • Vista
  • When You Wish Upon a Star

All the charities were very grateful for the money they received and are now able to put this into helping out the people who need it.

If you see a Guide Dog on an escalator, please be patient.

Guide dogs are taught how to get on & disembark an escalator to keep them safe. Any unexpected movements could result in an accident for either of us.

Even after a long day, look how concentrated @Kika_GuideDog is ⬇️⬇️
