When John’s phone rang with a call from an unexpected number, he discovered he was the winner of a brand new car – courtesy of Seeing Eye Dogs Lucky Puppy Lottery!

‘I honestly thought the caller was joking or it was a scam. Then I realised this was real! And I actually needed a new car,’ John smiles.

John was mourning the loss of his wife and beloved dog when he found out some wonderful news.

The proud owner of a new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, John entered the lottery following his own diagnosis of glaucoma, as he wanted to give back to an organisation he knew was supporting people who are blind or have low vision.

‘Seeing Eye Dogs is a good organisation to support when you consider the possibility that any one of us could lose our sight and need help,’ says John.
