Thank you to everyone who got LOUD for Loud Shirt Day 2022 to help create a sound future for 

deaf children.

This year those getting LOUD ranged from tortoises to dancers across all ages included family, friends, supporters and the AVUK team.

Rayan Basma took part with her family including daughters Mia (8) and one-year-old Gabriella – both Rayan and her daughters are deaf. She said: “It is so important that all deaf children should get the same opportunities to achieve their dreams and potential like Mia and Gabriella.”

And Sam Callaghan took on his own unique Loud Shirt Day challenge - a sponsored silence. The 11-year-old said: “I am profoundly deaf and I was helped by AVUK to speak so I wanted to raise money for them with a sponsored two hour silence. This very difficult as I am quite a big chatterbox but the whole family managed it although I was relieved when it was over and I could talk again!”

Don’t forget you can still donate
