In memory of my guide dog Ronnie
Those we love don’t go away
They walk beside us every day

Pieter Van Niekerk

While we often treasure fond memories of a special person or a special four-footed friend, we don’t always have the opportunity to pay tribute to the positive influence they had on our lives.

South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind has introduced a Wall of Remembrance at our Gladys Evans Training Centre. This will give you the opportunity to honour a loved one with a personalised plaque.

This special plaque can also mark a momentous occasion in a lasting way; Birthday, anniversary, wedding and graduation messages can be added to the Wall of Remembrance to mark a special day with a message of love and good wishes for the future.

Specifications :

  • Message must not exceed 140 characters (spaces included) and not be more than 4 lines long – per single plaque.
  • Your message will be engraved on a 215 mm by 60 mm plaque in Calibri font (Caps) in font-size 24.
  • A single plaque is R500, if you require more than one plaque, you can purchase a double sized plaque at R750, and a triple sized plaque for R1,000.
  • Once your plaque has been ordered and paid for, there will be a short wait while it is being made and installed.
  • We will contact you once your plaque has been installed and we can arrange for you view your plaque during our office hours.
  •  You will be invited as a guest to the next graduation ceremony to view your plaque and meet our latest graduates.
