VHR took part in Loud Shirt Day on Friday the 7th of June, supporting Auditory Verbal UK.
Loud Shirt Day is in support of the award-winning national charity Auditory Verbal UK (AVUK) which helps deaf children learn to listen and talk.
Many deaf children are still under-achieving at school, are at higher risk of isolation, bullying and social exclusion and have lower employment prospects. AVUK is transforming deaf children’s lives, with 80% of children who spend at least two years on our programme achieving age appropriate language.
The day encourage people to wear their ‘loudest’ shirts, bright colours, crazy patterns, anything that prompts people to ask them why they’d wear a shirt like that. This helps raise awareness of the issue and the charity.
Dozens of VHR’s employees took part, and in total VHR managed to raise £82!
