With our #WhereIsTheInterpreter fundraising campaign now over we are excited to tell you that through our JustGiving page we have raised a whopping £20,000 toward our target.
This is an incredible sum of money that we have raised together and we want to thank everybody that has supported this campaign. We did it TOGETHER!
What fantastic news to end Sign Language Week! After an incredible and daunting year of fundraising, we’ve hit our target raising £20,000 for the #WhereIsTheInterpreter campaign.
I’ve been so impressed by the levels of creativity and commitment of everyone who has helped us reach our target.
A big thank you to Sign Solutions, RAD, the DM Raffle, the Give Us The Sign Choir, and every one of you who have donated, spread the word and supported this campaign.
“I can’t believe it – I’m simply lost for words! An incredible moment that I will never forget”.Lynn Stewart-Taylor
Thank you, everyone, for all your hard work, and I look forward to updating you on our upcoming court cases, and how the money will be spent in our fight to ensure we have equal access to information in British Sign Language.
“This has been hard and heroic effort from some hugely dedicated campaigners and thanks to this money we can ensure that the legal action can proceed on a cost protected basis which gives us the best opportunity ever to see permanent lasting change and that and BSL/English Interpreter is as part of mainstream broadcasting”.Chris Fry
