FRIENDSHIP

Celebrity host Jeff Brazier speaks to guide dog owners Alex Pepper and Nathan Edge, who both lost their sight completely as teenagers. They are joined by Nathan’s friend Pete Jones-Hall who he met through Guide Dogs’ My Guide service. Topics of discussion include football; coming to terms with sight loss; how it can make or break friendships; what similarities, differences and challenges there are in making friends when you are blind. Alex shares hilarious friendship fails – including childhood mates being so used to his sight loss that they frequently forget he has it and leave him in pubs, clubs and even on stag dos by accident. Pete and Nathan share how My Guide matched Pete to support Nathan train for the London marathon and how with “only one good eye” between them, they bonded straight away.
