We’re working hard to make a difference to deaf children and young people in York and North Yorkshire. But without wonderful supporters like you, this simply wouldn’t be possible. There are many ways you can help Lollipop. It’s thanks to you we can continue to deliver such an incredible service.

Virgin Giving is an online social platform where you can make stand alone or monthly donations using the button above. Please donate – no matter how big or small, every penny counts.

Events & Challenges

There are countless things you can do to get sponsored. Push yourself to the limit by running a Marathon or jumping out of a plane! Too ambitious? You could do a sponsored silence instead. It really doesn’t matter what you decide to do, every penny you raise helps support Lollipop. Don’t forget to send us a photo of what you get up to so we can add to our blog and Facebook page.

Fundraise at schools

Dress down day/Fancy dress
This is probably one of the easiest and most successful fundraising ideas. Ask pupils to pay a set donation to wear their own clothes to school. Or something more fun – ask them to dress up instead – possibly as their favourite character and even better, get the teachers involved too.

Jumble sale
Ask pupils to bring in items such as toys, books or clothes and hold a jumble sale. You could also ask them to hold a cake sale at the same time to raise even more money.

Fundraise at work

Events and challenges
Members of staff who are taking on a challenge for Lollipop can ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them.

Auction your boss
Auction your boss to raise money for Lollipop. The winner will buy their time, e.g. for an hour or a day –and give them some tasks to carry out. Should be interesting!

Have a dress down or fancy-dress day
Get everyone to donate a set amount to come to work in their casual clothes, pyjamas or even in fancy dress.

Get a counter collection box
A collection box for small change is a simple and easy way to raise funds. We’ll provide the box and all the support you need. Just give us a call on 01904 652286 or email info@lollipopyork.org.uk.
