Donate to 2 Deaf Foot John O’Groats 2 Land’s End

2 Deaf Tekking Walk, John O'Groats 2 Land's End

Land’s End to John O’Groats (LEJOG)

Two Deaf men have captured the imagination of the Deaf community by setting out on a walk from John O’Groats to Lands End to raise money to support treatment for Deaf people with mental health problems.

This is the route they will be taking in their massive challenge

Mark Hodgson and Daniel Dorney are walking to raise £10,000 for Deaf4Deaf and SignHealth to support their work to give Deaf people services like counselling in BSL. They are accompanied by support driver Christopher Potts.

To support them, give money on the Crowdfunding page here!

At the time of writing, they have already raised £6,480, which suggests the final sum they raise may be more than their target sum.

Mark and Daniel have set up a Just Giving page, and you can donate here.
