There are many ways of becoming involved with Hear for Norfolk, from volunteering to organising or joining one of our fundraising events.
Pictured above is Marion Himpleman, President of Norfolk County Women’s Bowls Association presenting her cheque for £1,114.00 to Aliona Derrett who is the CEO for Hear for Norfolk which is the trading name for the Norfolk Deaf Association together with her Deputy Mark Mabbitt.
Hear for Norfolk was Marion’s charity of choice for 2023 for personal reasons as her grandson was born partially deaf. Hear for Norfolk is dedicated to improving the emotional wellbeing, communication and overall quality of life of people with Hearing loss and is based at 14 Meridian Way, Norwich.
The money was raised by Marion hosting a Presidents Day which included a Bowls match, buffet and raffles, one being for a signed Norwich City Football shirt and donations from fellow County bowlers and members of her club Acle St Edmunds Bowls Club.
Hear for Norfolk (formally the Norfolk Deaf Association) was formed in 1898 to help people in Norfolk with hearing problems.
Some people are deaf, others hard of hearing but we can help them all. There are about 125,000 people in Norfolk with hearing problems. Only 30% receive any support. 1 in 7 people will experience hearing loss during their lifetime and as the population ages, so the number will increase.
We have developed many different projects over the years. With your valued support we can expand our services and really make a difference to a disadvantaged and often isolated sector of the community.
Please help us make the difference.
