One in five of us in the UK are deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing and we rely on subtitles and captions to experience the joy of live theatre, to sing along with our favourite musicals, to take guided tours around museums, or to see our favourite authors speak at festivals. We at Stagetext are asking for your help with fundraising, so together we can make the arts a more welcoming and accessible place.
We have one space available for this year’s London Marathon, taking place on Sunday 2 October. If you are a keen runner who wants to take part in one of the world’s most famous races while raising money for our charity, please get in touch.
