Sunday 22 July 2018 saw WDDA tutors, trustees and supporters take our ‘Sign for Change’ campaign out in to the community as we hosted a family fun day in Boscombe Chine Gardens.  The aim of the event was to help bring hearing and Deaf children and families together and to help breakdown some of the barriers to communication by introducing families to BSL and I think it’s safe to say that we did just that!  Our very own award winning Signature Sign Choir took centre stage performing a repertoire of songs, entertaining the crowds and engaging passers by.  We had face painting, arts and crafts, baby sing and sign, BSL sign supported storytelling and signing puppets along with live music, cream teas and a whole lot of cake (thank you to Sainsburys Boscombe and Aldi Boscombe for their generous support and to all those who kindly donated homemade cakes on the day).

We are currently fundraising to support our work teaching Deaf parents of young pupils to deliver to Deaf Awareness & Communication training to local Nursery and Primary Schools in Dorset.  Thanks to all who joined us on Sunday and kindly donated, helping us to raise £92.22

We are how we treat each other, and nothing more…”

Thank you to: Signature Sign Choir, Abi from Arts2Educate, Holly from Little Fingers, Big Feet Baby & Toddler Signing Classes, Glen from Rainbow Arts Dorset CIC, Sian Louise Photography, Sarah Haywood, The Sweet Peas, Bournemouth Deaf Club, Friends of Boscombe Chine Gardens and all the WDDA trustees, tutors and supporters for donating their time and energy to support the event and an extra special thank you to all the children and families who came together to make the event such a success.
