    Weʼve raised £145 to buy a radio link for a deaf canicross runner

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I am raising funds to help my close friend Sam buy a radio link. Sam is profoundly deaf but never lets this hold her back. She enjoys canicross and bikejor and is a member of a local club. Several years ago, Sam had a radio link which enabled her to take part in group lessons and workshops. Sadly this radio link was stolen and what's even worse is that the thieves would likely have had no use whatsoever for it so it probably ended up being thrown away. Sam would like to be able to take part in canisports workshops and talks but this will be almost impossible for her to follow without a radio link. I would love to raise the funds to buy her a new one so that she can take part like every one else. All donations, no matter how small, would be gratefully received.

      Thank you to everyone who's donated so far. Following a recent trip to Southampton University, Sam has discovered a new kind of radio link device that can 'tune in' to her hearing aid. This doesn't have such a wide range as the one she'd initially hoped to get, but it comes with the advantage of a much lower price tag at around £450. With just a week of fundraising left to go, let's see if we can get her closer to this target 🎯
