Yesterday, we had the pleasure of representing Causing a Scene at the Hearing Loss Cornwall website launch. Now, it’s no secret that we adore Hearing Loss Cornwall and are so, so grateful for their support so it was a proper treat to go along. The event itself was a massive success, you should absolutely check out the new website here. There’s all kinds of resources and information, so it’s really worth checking out. We particularly loved what Clare, the Executive Officer, had to say about the design of the website. She didn’t want it to be too clinical, too ‘healthcare’. She wanted to reflect that there are people living, properly enjoying their lives, with hearing loss. We can’t make every conversation about hearing loss also about healthcare, so Hearing Loss Cornwall have got it spot on with their design. Wavy clapping hands all round.
The highlight for us, aside from the incredible Porthleven Signing Choir, was the chance to meet with Sarah Newton. She’s the MP for Truro and Falmouth, but she’s also the patron of Hearing Loss Cornwall. We had the chance to have a great chat with her and we’re really excited to hopefully work with her in the future.
When Clare sent us these pictures, one was saved as “Sarah Newton with campaigner Catherine”. Campaigner. Madness.
