The Morrisons store in Nelson has generously handed over an impressive £500 donation to Deaf Children North West (DCNW).
The donation was secured by DCNW following an application, and will now be used to help develop the confidence and communication skills of deaf children and deaf volunteers.
The cheque was presented to Chantelle de la Croix, vice chair of DCNW, by Morrisons community champion Sam Sutton.
After receiving the award, Chantelle said: “Deaf children struggle with language barriers from a very young age, and this is something we strive to overcome.
“In terms of education we ensure that deaf children have the same access and opportunities as hearing children, which will give them confidence and help them become equal in mainstream society.”
The Morrisons Foundation was established this year, and provides financial support to registered charities across the UK.
Chantelle added: “A big thank you to Morrisons for this donation, it will help change the lives of deaf children and for that we are very grateful.”
