Vital funds raised for Exeter charity following Princesshay fundraising efforts

09 February 2017

Princesshay and local charity, Exeter Deaf Academy have announced that more than £18,000 has been raised since the launch of their charity partnership in February 2016.

A car raffle in partnership with Mercedes Benz, Exeter, raised more than £12,300 alone for the charity, with the winner of a £22,000 Mercedes-Benz A-Class announced on Christmas Eve. 

Throughout 2016, Princesshay has worked with Exeter Deaf Academy to raise vital funds. Other fundraising events included taking part in The City to Sea Marathon, a challenging 26.5-mile route from Exeter to Babbacombe Downs in Torquay, sponsoring the Exeter Deaf Academy football team’s kit, a giant Christmas snow globe and donations from GoKart Party.

As well as all the activities throughout 2016, a wishing well that was placed in Princesshay, raised over £1,500 for the charity.

Exeter Deaf Academy the UK’s oldest specialist Deaf education provider. The charity has been changing the lives of Deaf young people in Exeter for over 190 years. Today they operate a school, college and residential care for young people aged 4-24 who come to the city from throughout the country. However, the Deaf Academy is not funded in the same way as state schools and so relies on fundraising to support much of the essential and innovative work that it does.
