Fundraising events calendar
We have a full calendar of fundraising events throughout the whole year, which are supported
by a wide section of the community.
If you are organising or taking part in your own event to raise money for The Elizabeth Foundation we would love to hear from you so we can offer our help to make your event a success.
Thank you to all our wonderful supporters, past and present! The money
raised from these events plays a vital part in continuing our vital services for young deaf children
and their families.
