Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

Hearing Dogs North Hants & Surrey Borders Fundraising Group

We are a small dedicated local group of volunteers working to raise awareness and funds to help train and provide specially trained Hearing Dogs for severely and profoundly deaf children and adults. These clever dogs alert a deaf person to everyday sounds such as their name being called, the alarm clock, doorbell, cooker alarm and more importantly danger signals such as the smoke alarm.

Our aim is to give back Confidence, Companionship and Independence. Our dogs also give visibility to an otherwise invisible disability as they wear a distinct burgundy jacket which enables other people to see that the person who appears to be ignoring them cannot in fact hear them.

We raise funds and awareness of the charity by attending local fetes and fairs throughout the summer and holding a stall at the Fleet Christmas Festival in November. We are lucky enough to have among our local volunteers a Hearing Dog Mum fosterer, a puppy socialiser and recipients of a hearing dog whose lives have been changed completely. Here is Fleet resident Anne talking about her Hearing Dog Tegan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkCEHGqd6ag

Around the UK we currently support 900 partnerships between a deaf person and a hearing dog - 35 partnerships live in the local area with a further 27 people on our waiting list. Our work is entirely voluntary funded so raising awareness and funds at Fleet Half Marathon we can honour our lifetime commitment to everyone who receives the gift of a Hearing Dog.

  • Sunday’s forecast - Less than 5% chance of rain, 10 degrees but feels like 6. Bit windy. Race is going ahead.
  • Lead car prepped and ready.
  • A thought for next year, could there be a number collection desk in say Hart shopping centre on the Sat so that local people can collect their numbers the day before. I know this means volunteers for an extra day but would reduce the rush on the Sunday. I know that Maidenhead Half do this.
  • Ok, so pretty soon the admin team will have to stop answering some of the emails. Race notes were sent out via email last weekend and our website answers most questions. Jim Trott can answer most other questions.... https://youtu.be/3Z0QUygjr2w
  • Could be a touch windy on Sunday... then again, it could be 10 degrees with a light easterly breeze, who knows.
  • We’ve just posted a link below to our race results and there should also be a link on our website home page to the results. PLEASE don’t message us on Sunday to ask where/when the results are. Please also note that when the results are posted initially they are classed as PROVISIONAL results until we’ve confirmed that everything was fine and there were no discrepancies. Things can and do go wrong in a race, for example a single 10k runner crossing the finish line after only one lap pushes everyone down one place and plays havoc with prize awards too. I hope you all have a great race and that your hard work and training pays off and most importantly that you enjoy the day.
  • Retweeted SportSystems (@SystemsSport): @Fleet10k Results links for #Fleet10k https://t.co/sdU1uES2uc and #Fleet5k https://t.co/YkYkWfY90J on Sunday Have a good run! https://t.co/TGzjkSFDda
  • Hi, please can you tell me what time you're closing the roads on Sunday? We are coming from the m4 to twesledown so want to make sure we get through before. Thanks
  • Hi, please can you advise which roads in Fleet will be shut on Sunday? I can't find the informatin on your website or anywhere else. TIA
  • Thanks to @CllrSteveF for reporting some of the potholes on the race route. Hopefully these will be taken care of before race day
