July 8, 2023 by admin in News

Don Foster, MP for Bath today attended a fundraising event to raise money for Action On Hearing Loss (formerly RNID).

The event held at Porter on George Street, Bath, raised over £400 for Action On Hearing Loss Outreach, music and art departments. A raffle on the night raised an extra £85, the money from which is going towards a Great Wall of China fundraising trek for Action On Hearing Loss by Liza and Rachel. The top prize was a 2 course meal and wine at the Real Italian Pizza Company in Bath.

Three local bands played on the night - Deadbeat Valentino, Pavlov and The Dogs featuring Jeff the Human Drummer, and The Hysterical Injury. There was signed poetry by Deaf poet Donna Williams, poetry by hearing poet Jo Butts and everything was interpreted live into British Sign Language so was fully accessible for a Deaf audience.
