Did you know that on Wednesday 3rd March 2021 it is World Hearing Day? The charity Signal is based here in Shropshire, but the work they do supports people who are Deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus across the World.
Signal wondered if our school children would be up for a World Hearing Day challenge!
They would love it if you could hold a sponsored 1-hour silence on the 3rd March to raise money for Signal and awareness for the work we do helping to support the Deaf.
Since 2013 Signal has directly supported over 94,000 people (42,784 people internationally and 51,250 people in UK). In the last year, they have supported 1992 children with disabilities to access education and trained 734 teachers to provide an inclusive learning environment.
I’m sure many parents will relish an hour’s peace (!) but they hope the experience will give children an understanding of what hearing loss or deafness might be like. Signal will also be sharing videos online with some basic sign language, so the children will be able to ask you ‘how much longer?’ or ‘can I have a snack?’!
The hour can be at any time to suit your schedule.
This will be a great way to expand their experiences, learn something new and raise a few pounds for a good cause.
All they need to do it download the attached sponsorship form.
Thank you for your support!
