Deafblind UK


Imagine a world where your sight is blurred and sounds are muffled, where everyday things like finding information, cooking, leaving the house, even talking to family and friends, are exhaustingly difficult. Living with deafblindness can be frightening, lonely and confidence-draining. For over 90 years, we have given vital support to people who are deafblind, helping them to live the life they want. We help people to build their confidence and independence; continuing their lives beyond sight and hearing loss. To support our members through the Coronavirus pandemic, we have extended our helpline opening hours and have moved as many of our services as possible online. Your support in this race will help us to continue to offer this extended support to people who need us.

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £378

Supporters so far: 45
