When you walk, you help people like Joanna…
“Since having Marshall my life keeps getting better and better. His uniform indicates that I’m deaf and this gives me confidence. Whereas before, I would avoid talking to people, now I’m far less anxious about not understanding them so I no longer hide away in the shadows.”
– Joanna and Marshall
Please take part in the Great British Dog Walk and help more deaf people like Joanna to leave loneliness behind.
"The Great British Dog Walk is a fantastic opportunity to get yourself or your dog sponsored to raise vital funds to help deaf people leave loneliness behind." - Rachel Riley, TV presenter
