OAL to support Deafblind UK in 2018
In 2018, we'll be working with and supporting national sight and hearing loss charity, Deafblind UK to raise awareness and donations for people that suffer from sight and hearing damage.
Deafblind UK support people with sight and hearing loss to live the lives they want and helps to ensure deafblind people have the same rights, access and opportunities as others. They provide a wide range of direct support services and also support and educate external organisations as to how to help their own staff and customers with the challenges being both deaf and blind presents. The charity will be organising an information day at OAL's Peterborough site where they will demonstrate the impact of sight and hearing loss on everyday life to help raise awareness and increase understanding.
Jake Norman to run the London Marathon for Deafblind UK
Jake Norman, OAL's Marketing & Innovation Manager will be taking to the streets of London this April to run the London Marathon raising money for Deafblind UK.
Jake explained: “Deafblind UK is a hugely worthwhile charity and we're excited about the opportunity to support them in any way we can. Even shutting your eyes and ears for just five minutes gives you a sense of the challenges people face. Imagine trying to go shopping, or cook dinner; the world would be a very scary place! So I’m going to push myself to the absolute limits in London for Deafblind UK!”
For every donation, you can guess Jake's finishing time to the nearest second for your chance to win two Club Wembley tickets to the England vs Nigieria on 2nd June and a bottle of champagne.
