B.B.C. continues to support charities…

Tuesday, 28 February 2017 00:26

We are delighted to continue our support of two chosen registered charities, Genie Networks and 318 Air Cadets Squadron Sale, once again in 2017.

As a not-for-profit business club, we regularly donate money to our designated charities and during 2016, as well as providing support and promotion, we were pleased to donate £750 to each.

Each charity is given the opportunity during the meeting to deliver a presentation, on a rotational basis with other members, setting out the work undertaken by the charity. This is in addition to a weekly outline which may include reinforcing the purpose of the charity, how we can support special events, raise money, and how we can help to promote the charity to those who may be able to benefit from the charity work.

Genie Networks

Based in Stretford, Greater Manchester, Genie Networks provides support for deaf people and their families. Established by Claire Johnson in 2005, the charity has gone from strength to strength with a dedicated team, all with experience and backgrounds linked with deafness, who are passionate about the work they do.

Did you know approximately 9 million people in the UK have a hearing loss?

Children

The use of events and activities in safe and fun environments enable families to play and learn together encouraging communication and education for children of all ages. There are multiple events throughout the year for children to attend and interact.

Did you know 90% of all deaf children are born to hearing parents?

Genie Training Academy

It is estimated that 1 in 6 people in the UK have been diagnosed with hearing loss and therefore awareness of communication tactics such as lip reading, English modification and sign language are invaluable skills. Friendly, experienced teachers provide high quality courses which cover a variety of communication and awareness methods. The price is kept at the lowest possible.

Did you know approximately 50,000 people in the UK use sign language as their first language?
