Taking part in an event is a great way to support the New Deaf Academy appeal.

And if nothing here takes your fancy then why not organise your own? Get in touch with your idea and we’ll support you every step of the way.
Take a look at the list below and sign up today to help to make a real difference to young Deaf lives.
“I decided to take part in the Santa Sizzle as I have been lucky enough to meet some of the young people at the Deaf Academy and know what a difference the new campus will make to them. I’m not really an adventurous or brave person but sometimes you just have to take on a challenge so I went for it and signed up!
The first challenge was to raise the £100 fundraising. I thought it might be hard but my friends and family really got behind me and the online sponsorship page and FaceBook donate were so easy to set up – I was AMAZED and delighted when I managed to raise £382 just by asking (and prompting my friends a little)!
I was nervous on the day but everyone from the Academy and Firewalk UK were so lovely. Scott from UK Firewalk did a briefing which helped to dispel my nerves and the whole set up was really professional. When it came to my go I just went for it – and then did it another 3 times!!! The crowd and the cheers on the evening were amazing and I felt so proud afterwards – both for doing the challenge and also for supporting the Deaf Academy. It was a fabulous experience and my feet were fine afterwards! It’s amazing what you can do when you put mind over matter! I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for days and I’d say to anyone – just do it.”
