My story

The 26th April 2020, would have been the London Marathon and my charity would have had five runners taking part. DELTA (Deaf Education through Listening and Talking) has been part of my life for the last 27 years, since we were shown how the Natural Aural Approach could help our severe/profoundly deaf daughter to learn to listen and talk. DELTA relies heavily on the funds normally raised to continue helping families like ours. Personally I should have been in the Lake District walking our regular 6+ mile hike up the Langdale Valley. Instead I am donning my boots, picking up my sticks (to help my bionic hips up the steps) and walking to all edges of my hillside garden in a circular route 26 times approx.420 paces and at least 2 flights of steps each circuit. The smallest amount you feel able to donate is more than we would be raising tomorrow without. it. Thanking you in anticipation

12 thousand steps and 52 flights of stairs, one very confused Springer spaniel who followed along throughout with his tennis ball and one pair of creaky knees later - hike completed. Thank you to everyone who donated.
