Join the global day of giving!

Giving Tuesday is on 1st December. It is a global day of giving where everyone, everywhere can do something to support the good causes that mean the most to them.

This year the organisers have created an initiative called GiveBack 2020. It’s an opportunity for charity supporters (like you!) to do something positive to make a difference to a charity or charities of your choice at the end of 2020, which let’s admit, has been a difficult year for everyone.

In 2019 Giving Tuesday raised over £14 million and holds the record for the most money raised online in 24 hours!

Why support Lollipop on Giving Tuesday?

The pandemic has had a huge impact on Lollipop because our activities and fundraising events have always been face-to-face! Not being able to meet others in person has had a greater impact on the deaf community who can find video calls very difficult or inaccessible. While meeting in person has not been possible we have worked hard to adapt and provide new ways for Lollipop members and families to interact and provide support to each other. Our online bingo nights, quizzes, BSL lessons and toddler group provide regular opportunities for our members to meet, all with communications support available.

Here is some recent feedback from parents of our members:

“We would like to say a big THANK you to all and we hope you continue the great work, Lollipopers….you are part of our family and we need you more than ever now!!”
“I just wanted to say thank you for everything you do and have done especially through this crazy time.”

About our At Home with Cheryl BSL video sessions:

 “We loved week one. Sat down and watched it as a family and then practiced.”

We are so grateful to our members and supporters who have adapted with us this year! Help us continue to evolve and adapt so we can provide the support needed for deaf children and young people in York and the surrounding areas! Local charity giving is more important than ever!

  • Send e-cards for Christmas and donate the cost of the cards and stamps you would normally buy. Virgin Giving has a great selection of e-cards to choose from and there is an option to make your own design. It’s also good for the planet!

  • Donate the cost of your usual morning coffee or your morning commute.

  • Not able to take part in a Christmas Jumper day at work this year? Why not have one online and your usual donation to Lollipop this year?



Whatever you do to give back, a massive thank you to you!

We hope you have fun being part of #GiveBack 2020!
