Deaf charity plea for more volunteers
A DEAF charity has launched a campaign to attract new volunteers in the Tenterden and Ashford areas. Hi-Kent, which works with the deaf and the hard of hearing, has received extra funding allowing it to extend its volunteer-staffed hearing aid aftercare and advice clinics throughout the borough. As a result, it is looking to recruit up to 10 new volunteers.
John Clayton, Hi-Kent chief executive, said: “We urgently need new volunteers to help run new clinics in Biddenden, Rolvenden, Smarden, Wye, Kennington and Bethersden. “The work is interesting and rewarding and we provide full training.” Following training, volunteers need contribute only two to three hours each month. Expenses are paid.
