This fund-raising page is to raise money for my share which will go towards the costs of flights, accommodation and other necessities for our 10-day trip to South Africa. As someone who is severely deaf and has never really been around other deaf people while growing up, joining the EDRU and meeting other hard of hearing people has been a wonderful experience, being able to share similar life experiences with others has been fantastic. For me, this is my first time playing in an all deaf rugby team, in which my deafness is taken into account and patience is afforded to me when I struggle to hear or understand when someone is saying something. I understand that this is a big ask, and so the tiniest donation or even just sharing this, would be amazing!
