14 May 2019

Members and guests visiting our Alan Shearer Activity Centre had a great time getting stuck into some special arts and crafts to mark Deaf Awareness Week.

They had great fun with our staff, creating a collage of paper hands with the fingers positioned in such a way as to spell out various words in British sign language, including “I love you”.

Deaf Awareness Week is an annual event that helps to raise awareness of deafness and hearing loss and the range of organisations that support deaf people, their family and friends, including the Alan Shearer Activity Centre.

If you would like to become a member of our Alan Shearer Centre and use some of our fantastic free facilities, including the creative sound & music room and the Hydropool, why not get in touch today.

Membership is completely free and can be done simply by completing the application form on our website or feel give us a call on 0191 2678118 and our friendly staff will be happy to help.
