Charity calls for fundraising help

Would you be interested in holding a Santa Paws event for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People?

If so, the charity wants to hear from people who can help change the life of a deaf person this Christmas by raising money at festive gatherings – big or small, from mince pies and sherry after church to a cake sale at school or the office, to a formal dinner “Come Dine with Me” style.

Community fundraising manager Sue Pellow said, “Santa Paws is our latest fundraising initiative – we’re asking people to raise money at their festive gathering this Christmas to help us to change the lives of more deaf people by providing them with a hearing dog. There are loads of festive fundraising ideas – whether you’re asking for a donation in return for a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine, holding a raffle at your office party or playing a game of pin the nose on Rudolph, we’d be delighted to hear from you and help you with your fundraising.”

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of its supporters and volunteers to continue helping deaf people.
