Fund Raising

DELTA receives no statutory funding and raises all its funds from voluntary contributions, grants, memberships and it’s fabulous fundraisers.

Fundraising comes in many forms and every pound and penny raised is very much appreciated.

Individual or Team Challenge:- The London Marathon,

Our team for 2017 was made up of  five runners. Click on the links to read more about them and if possible pledge your support.

Third consecutive time competitor for DELTA is MARK FAWKES. Mark looked forward to running with a new team this year and offered to accept challenges during his training.  

GARY POWELL  whose father Con Powell, was one of the co-founders of DELTA’s predecessor, NAG, ran the marathon for DELTA for the first time.

NICI MEEKINGS,  raised funds through a number of ways including a pub quiz and raffle, and charity breakfasts at work in appreciation of the opportunity to run the London marathon.

STEVE HAYWARD described the opportunity to run the London Marathon as a win-win situation as it allowed him to raise money for a very worthwhile cause whilst achieving a long term ambition in running the marathon,

FIONA ARAUJO described the marathon as a huge challenge under any circumstances, but still ‘coming back to life’ after the birth of her little boy added an extra challenge. As Fiona said, every donation spurred her on, and every penny will help DELTA to continue the great work they do. http;//

Duncan Atkins was an Iron Man competitor, and cycled from London (Clock) to Gibralter (Rock)


Nightrider (cycling), 

Duncan rides for DELTA!  I am now retired and like to cycle whenever I can. I have not done 50k before in one go but I am pleased to take on this challenge for DELTA. I am married to one of the founder members of the charity and have had the privilege, over 30+ years, of meeting impressive deaf young people – independent and speaking for themselves – whose families have been helped by DELTA. I hope that whatever sum I can raise will contribute to the Charity’s efforts to help more families.

Event details     15th-16th July-2017 starting at 10.50 (finishing – who knows!)

Liverpool Nightrider I am doing the 50k challenge in the Liverpool Nightrider event setting off at 10.50pm. We start at  the Pier Head, ride through one of the Mersey Tunnels and then along a route through the Wirral. It all seemed like a good idea at the time! I hope I will be finished in time to get some sleep!

Painfree fundraising at no extra cost to you:-

Used Postage stamps:-

What do you do with the stamps that come with your mail both at home and work? You could put them to good use and help DELTA. All you need to do is collect your stamps and post them to at the address below. We are then able to raise £6.00 per kilo of stamps.
The stamps must be totally unsorted, just as received through the mail. The stamps will need to be on single paper (just the front part of the envelope), and with approximately ¼” of paper around each one.
You don’t have to wait until you have collected a kilo, just send them whenever you want but please ensure your package has the correct postage on it. Please pass this information on to family and friends. Could you set up a stamp collection at work? The more stamps the more money goes to DELTA.
Please send your stamps to:-
