What is Drumathon?

Drumathon is a noisy, fundraising extravanganza!  Help us by raising money for our work with deafblind children and raise the roof at the same time.

It’s simple…create a drum, choose a beat; make a difference!

We hope children everywhere will make a real effort in creating imaginative drumming equipment from everyday household objects in the build up to their Drumathon and join us in 2014/15 when schools and community groups everywhere will stop and think for just ten minutes about the value of sight and sound.

Register your school, nursery or youth group in our annual fundraiser and receive our easy-to-follow pack which slots effortlessly into everyday learning activity. We know that your school or group will benefit from this informative and imaginative day; at the same time supporting a great national charity. They’ll have so much fun – they won’t even realise they’re learning.

To register please email Drumathon@sense.org.uk or call our fundraising team on 0300 330 9257.

A huge thank you to the thousands of children that have taken part in this event helping raise vital funds and awareness for deafblind children and adults across the UK.
