Huddersfield New College welcomed Will Hunt from the charity 'Music and the Deaf' last week. Will was presented with a cheque for the charity, the monies having been raised during the College's 'Hidden Disabilities' awareness raising event. ‘Music and the Deaf’ is the only UK charity entirely dedicated to providing access, education and opportunities in music for deaf children, young people and adults.
Erika Montgomery (Equality & Diversity Manager), who organised the event, commented that, 'It was fascinating to learn about the excellent and pioneering work that 'Music and the Deaf' (MATD) does in relation to music education and hearing impairment awareness. We are delighted to have contributed funds raised at our ‘Hidden Disabilities event to support future projects at MATD.'
