Attached is September’s issue of our Newsletter.
As well as our own news, we are delighted to include an article from Rotary Club of Thornbury which is in District 1100. They have written to us to explain how they are getting on with the joint Rotary/Hearing-Link “Let’s Hear” project. They have done such a lot in their community, and I am sure members will be interested in what they have achieved for the hard of hearing.
We have invited Hearing Link to talk about the “Let’s Hear” project at our next Hearing Ambassadors workshop which will be held on 19 November in North East Derbyshire. At the half day workshop, we will also have a speaker from Deaf-inately Women, a Derbyshire charity for Deafened Women, and Hearing Ambassador Rosie will be running a pilot of her training course which is aimed at helping clubs to understand what they can do to ensure that all members are fully included in meetings, regardless of how well they hear.
We see this as a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in hearing loss to get to know more and share ideas about how to make things better.
We will be making a small charge of £20 to cover the cost of room hire and light buffet lunch and refreshments.
We will be sending out further notices about the workshop nearer the time, but places will be limited to 20, so we are asking that anyone who is interested in attending to email us on RotaryHearingAmbassadors@gmail.com to register their interest.
