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.


Percy Shurmer is an AET Primary Academy; Deaf learning base based in Balsall heath Birmingham. We currently have members of staff people competing in the race from Percy Shurmer and our fellow AET Academy Montgomery Primary Academy. The abilities of people running the race range from marathon runners to people that are brand new to running and this would be their first race. Were all starting the race together in the 70s and 80s wave and will be all wearing the same sponsored tops out, if you see us give us a wave! The reason why we are taking part in the race is to raise awareness and raise money for equipment for our deaf learning base. Personal FM systems and hearing aids should be checked using a test box regularly. Results should highlight any problems with the equipment, and Educational Audiologists and Teachers of the Deaf will then be able to monitor whether the hearing aid is producing the correct gain across a number of frequencies and evaluate the performance of the hearing aids. Test box can also detect an underlying electrical fault. Moreover, the results from the test box can then be compared with previous curves and with audiograms. This information can then be shared with other teachers, children and parents in supporting children to use their residual hearing and to set up a child's Personal FM system. We currently borrow a 'test box' from 'Sensory Support Services' but having one at our school would enable us to work at a quicker pace to ensure all of the children's equipment is working at an optimal level. The AURICAL HIT is an advanced, portable hearing instrument test box. It is ideal for Teachers of the Deaf and Educational Audiologists who need to carry out regular checks of hearing aids and radio aids, these are the pieces of equipment we would be hoping to raise money for. As a team we are aiming to raise £5000 for these brilliant pieces of equipment.
We would gratefully for any donations , Thankyou so much in advance for your generosity.
