For 25 years Deafblind Scotland has been serving the Deafblind community, sustaining deafblind people's personal and professional support networks and influencing statutory services and policy. The work we do raises awareness of deafblindness, continually highlights the everyday challenges faced by deafblind people and makes a real difference to and for our citizens and their communities across Scotland.
To mark this landmark celebration, we've launched our Sterling Silver Appeal asking 1,000 individuals for a £25 donation. Our target of £25,000 would go some way to support our specialist services and reach out to many more individuals living with deafblindness.
To donate to our Sterling Silver Appeal you can do so online through our secure Justgiving site. Just click on this link.
You can also donate by debit or credit card by calling lesley Fleming on 0141 777 6111.
Former World boxing champion Ricky Burns has backed an upcoming auction and live entertainment evening in aid of Deafblind Scotland. The former WBO Lightweight Champion has signed a large canvas which will be auctioned at the event in Balornock Bowling Club on Friday 31 October. The Scottish fighter said: “I am delighted to support Deafblind Scotland in this small way. I have met one of their deafblind members, James Peline, at a fight and I was impressed with the skill of the charity’s guide/communicator in describing the action to him through just touch on the hand.” Thank you to Darwin Creative Media which kindly donated the canvas. The event will feature a range of live entertainment, fine food, a raffle and a charity auction. For more info on the event speak to Colin or Andrew on 0141 777 5853 or email email@example.com.
