With your help GDA could win £1,000...

It's that time of year again, when the streets starting looking a little brighter and tinsel starts adorning trees. It's also the time of year when Ecclesiastical launch their '12 days of giving' campaign where they donate £1,000 to 120 charities over the twelve days leading up to Christmas.

And with your help, GDA could be one of the lucky recipients. Nominating GDA takes just two minutes and is easy to do by clicking here.

To make your nomination easier, here are a few details to help you complete your entry:

  • Charity number - 1015937
  • Charity name - GDA
  • Charity type - Disability

£1,000 could help make a huge difference to the lives of children, young people and adults living with deafness in Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire. Deafness is one of the most misunderstood conditions in today's society and as a result, the effect it can have on a person's mental and physical wellbeing can be devastating.

Should GDA be one of the lucky charities selected by Ecclesiastical, the money will help fund social activities such as our twice-a-year Friendship Circle luncheons, a monthly deaf children's club and a monthly lunch club for BSL users, 50yrs and over. All these vital services help to enable a person to live confidently with their deafness; to be part of something that is inclusive and to leave behind the sense of isolation and loneliness that so often comes with hearing loss.

Thank you for choosing to support GDA. Please do tell your family and friends to nominate GDA as well, the more nominations we receive, the bigger chance we have of winning the £1,000.

Keep your fingers crossed.
