Deaf man and dog to walk 146 miles for charity

Posted Jun 18 2009 12:41pm

85 year old deaf man Antony Sabin and his hearing dog Branson are getting ready to walk 146 miles on a Shakespearean trail.

The pair hope to raise £35,000 for charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People by walking from the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe Theatre in London.

He will be waved off on Sunday 19th July from the RSC and hopes to arrive at the Globe Theatre on Saturday 8th August. Along the journey Mr Sabin will be joined by actor Patrick Stewart, who’s currently acting at the RSC and is a huge believer in the cause.

Mr Sabin believes that being deaf can be very challenging at times, but feels his hearing dog Branson makes a big difference. In their eight years together the pair have raised more than £35,000 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, walking a total of 500 miles.

He is thoroughly looking forward to him and Branson’s latest adventure and raising money for a cause close to his heart. To sponsor Antony Sabin and Branson visit
