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.
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.
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.
Starting on Monday 4th February 2019, then first Monday of every month except May when the group will be held on Monday 13th May.
