Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Several members of our society are taking part in a sponsored silence in order to raise money for the British Deaf Association. The BDA are a charity who seek equality, access and freedom of choice for deaf people. Their major goal is the legal recognition of both British and Irish Sign Language (BSL and ISL).

This involves making no sound at all during University hours and finding other means of communication including British Sign Language, but also mini-whiteboards! This silence will be between one and three days depending on the individual. Thank you so much for your consideration!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
