Downs Barn School - Milton Keynes

Date: Tuesday April 28, 2015

After Helen gave a talk about Hearing Dogs to Year2 and the class met and stroked Monty and Lupo (who have both since gone into training up at Bielby) and 10 week old Digby, Year2’s teacher decided they would like to raise some funds for us.

They did this by holding a sponsored silence one afternoon and raised the fantastic amount of £342.91.

One boy in Year2 Jenson, seen here in the cheque presentation, raised £128.40 on his own.

We were invited back to the cheque presentation and Terry with Dottie, Peggy, Gill with Brian and Mary with Digby went along. Mary presented Jenson with a certificate and also a Hearing Dog Notebook for his amazing contribution to the total and she also presented Year 2 with a certificate for their wonderful achievement.

Signed Christmas Carols

Date: Monday December 22, 2014

Our branch performed two sessions of signed carols this year in Middleton Hall, CMK and raised the fantastic sum of £1121.02

Many thanks go to everyone who took part, came along to the practices, helped with the collections and to our puppies who all looked adorable dressed up in their Christmas outfits!

Also thanks to Newton Longville C of E School for allowing us to have the use of a room at the school for our practices it was very much appreciated.

Laura's fundraising skydive

Date: Thursday August 21, 2014

Laura Martin will be skydiving from 13,000 feet on her 21st birthday for Hearing Dogs For Deaf People. She writes:

I am celebrating my 21st birthday by skydiving for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People as it’s something I want to tick off my ‘bucket list’ and also to help raise funds for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

It costs £45,000 to raise, train and support each dog and as it’s a charity not many people know about, I am hoping to raise awareness about what these wonderful dogs do.

My mum waited many years but it was worth the wait when last year she was partnered with Betty, her golden retriever Hearing Dog.

PLEASE give as much as you can, I won’t be jumping again, this is your ONLY chance.

Please donate via Just Giving.
