Story

Welcome to my Just Giving fundraising page; I am running the 2024 Edinburgh Half Marathon for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People to raise awareness and money to fund their amazing work. As an Audiologist, every day I see the impact that a hearing loss or deafness can have on a person's life - and those around them. The work that Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is vital in supporting people with deafness connect with their world. A hearing dog really is the deaf person's "ears" - read more about their amazing work here - https://www.hearingdogs.org.uk/about/ I'm sure you will agree that they are a fantastic charity and I would be grateful if you would sponsor me to raise funds so that we can place even more dogs to help even more people. Thank you.

About the charity

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People trains dogs to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds such as the smoke alarm, alarm clock, intruder alarms and baby monitors. These amazing dogs also help deaf people to leave loneliness behind by providing love, companionship and emotional support.
