Language is key to thinking, learning and interacting with others. An intervention that enables deaf children to acquire fundamental language skills early on, preventing them from falling behind others, is worth supporting.

A year ago, I started riding again having previously used a bike for commuting at least a decade before. My first ride finished 7 miles later, a small start towards the 300 or so miles I will be covering this July over 4 days from London to Paris.

Please sponsor my efforts. Not because I shall be dressed in Lycra, but because this is a great opportunity to support the work of a small group of people dedicated to assisting deaf children to acquire vital language skills that will enable them to succeed academically and socially alongside their hearing peers.
