Everyone loves making music, whether it’s singing in the shower or performing on X Factor! But imagine if you couldn’t hear? The world would be a very quiet place without music and all the other everyday sounds that we take for granted. But that is what it’s like for deaf people.

So we are asking schools, colleges and youth groups to host a musical performance, such as a concert or choir recital, to help raise money for Hearing Dogs!

Download your free educational resources, and use our fun and interactive activities to sing and sign along to music. The pack links to the National Curriculum and includes class-based activities, school competitions, recipes to make ‘pupcakes!’, and lots of great fundraising ideas.

We’d love to see what you get up to, so please share any photos of your yummy pupcakes or sign language skills with us on Facebook and Twitter, and don’t forget to send us your dog coat designs!
