Signing - April 2019
What an inspirational lad! Thank you to WI Committee member Louise for bringing along her son Zach and care worker Jo to explain all about British Sign Language. They gave us a demonstration on the richness of the language, and explained how best to communicate with a deaf person. We began to grasp the challenges that Zach has faced in his life, and then all had a go at signing some simple phrases and finger spelling our names, to much hilarity!
Karen from Red Box explained how the charity was helping to combat period poverty by providing free sanitary products in local junior and secondary schools.
She asked WI members specifically to donate teen pads and pants, to ensure that no girl misses school due to lack of protection.
… and here are the amazing donations collected the following month - Thank you ladies!
