Even during the lockdown, it’s easy to raise money to transform the life of a deaf child. You can have some fun keeping fit and active in the process and we’ve got plenty of ideas and tips to make your fundraising a success! You could set yourself a challenge to run, walk or cycle, or maybe you are musical and want to give a socially distanced fundraising concert to your neighbours, or online?

If you'd like to discuss supporting AVUK you can email us at [email protected] for more ideas.  

If you are planning to fundraise for us, you can set up a donate page on our website. Click here to start collecting donations today. You can also create a fundraiser through Facebook using this link. 

Raise money through your workplace

Callum and his family

Your work place can be a brilliant place in which to raise money for AVUK – through a bake sale, a quiz night or ’donate an hour of your salary’ day for example. Read how the Herholdts, whose son Callum graduated from AVUK, raised over £7,000 through their chiropractic clinic in Callum’s Quest.

Take on an active challenge

Pushing yourself physically whether by running, trekking, skydiving, swimming or cycling, is a great way of raising money for deaf children. If you've already picked your challenge, get in touch so that we can send you a fundraising shirt! If you haven't yet decided to drop us an email or give us a call and we can support you in finding the right challenge to suit you. 

“Running the London Marathon was one of the best days of my life! Highly recommended for anyone wishing to push themselves to the max and feel like a hero every step of the way! Thanks so much for everyone’s encouragement, donations, well-wishes, support before and on the day!  Special thanks to AVUK and my sister for rallying the troops and to everyone that supported on the day – the shouts and high fives really did make a massive difference.”
Evelyn, marathon runner

Support us at your celebration

James with his aunt Lucy at Belmont School, North London

Many of our generous supporters have chosen to fundraise for Auditory Verbal UK at a celebration in lieu of getting presents. Celebrations have included weddings, birthdays and Christmas. If you are planning to raise money to teach deaf children to listen and talk at your celebration, please let us know so that we can support you. 

Schools fundraising

Fundraising at your school is not only a fun way of raising money to support deaf children, but also an excellent way to teach children and young people about hearing loss and disability. We can provide you with information to support potential assemblies and newsletters, as well as posters to raise awareness about your fundraising. For more information visit this page
