Last Friday was Loud Shirt Day UK – a new national awareness campaign to raise money and awareness of Auditory Verbal UK, a charity teaching pre-school deaf children to listen and talk.
Auditory VerbalUK‘s early intervention programme has been transforming outcomes for severely and profoundly deaf children in the UK since 2003, with over 80% of children who graduate from the programme achieving spoken language equvalent to their hearing peers and most attending mainstream schools
The aim for the day was to wear our loudest, most garish shirts.
The whole team made an effort, with special commendations going to MD Nick, for his fabulously awful ensemble, and Head of Strategy Caroline, for her charity jumble rifling! Some of the other tenants at Jam Jar Studios got involved too, and we snapped a few pictures…
… Before diving in to some celebratory pizzas!
We had a great time, for a great cause. You can find more information about Auditory Verbal on their website, www.avuk.org.
