We’re very proud of the Fundraising team’s Emily Severn, who swam the chilly Serpentine in Hyde Park on 16 September to raise funds for Exeter Deaf Academy. So far she has raised an amazing £600!

Emily said:

‘Thank you to everyone who donated to my challenge. The Serpentine is really quite cold and the water is much filthier than I imagined! To swim and raise money for such inspirational deaf young people was a real pleasure.’ 

‘If anyone is considering taking on a fundraising challenge for the Exeter Deaf Academy, I urge them to do so. I had great fun and all in the name of a brilliant cause.’

Anyone who would like to follow in Emily’s footsteps and fundraise for us can email fundraising@exeterdeafacademy.ac.uk or phone 01392 267019. You can also check out our Events page for upcoming fundraising opportunities.
