Fundraising

Help us to make a difference for people with a visual impairment, hearing impairment and/or other disabilities across Yorkshire

Help us to make a difference.

You can help us to make a difference to local people with sight and hearing loss through assisting with fundraising, enriching the lives of adults with sensory loss and other disabilities, and our Club Wilber children who have sight loss.

 

How you can help

Imagine what it would be like to lose your sight or hearing.

Over 6,000 people across York live with sight loss and many of them don’t know where to go to access help. 

Over 20,000 people in York have hearing loss which makes communication difficult and can lead to social isolation where help is not available.

Our services can help you get back on your feet and live independently with sight and hearing loss but we need funds to continue to meet these needs.

There are plenty of ways you can help raised money for vital local funds to help us  support local people– making a one off or regular donation is one, or why not hold a cake sale for us? You could try doing a sponsored event or sell things you no longer want on ebay and donating the money to us.

We have a whole list of ideas in our fundraising pack which you can download here:

“Why do I give?  The question puzzles me because if one has never experienced that warm and satisfactory glow that comes from an unselfish act in helping others where the need is so obvious, then, one simply hasn’t lived.”
