Hearing and believing
SARAH Chester, of Wembley Downs, knows first-hand how money raised at the annual Artitude Amplified for Telethon Speech and Hearing positively affects families.
“We would have hid in a dark cupboard if not for Telethon Speech and Hearing,” the mum of seven said.
Her second youngest son Isaac is five and has attended the Wembley facility since three-year-old kindy.
“The support this program provides is next to none,” she said.
“It’s made a difference to how he processes information and has developed his language skills, but it’s mostly contributed to his social skills.”
Ms Chester is helping organise the 18th Artitude Amplified with social media influencer Melissa Graham.
“My mum’s youngest brother attended Telethon Speech and Hearing so we’ve always had that affiliation,” she said.
Paul Gullotti of Gullotti Galleries has returned to curate unique art from international and national artists.
West Australians Drew Straker and sculptor April Pine will feature in the New Works, New Faces collection.
■ Artitude Amplified is on June 16 at Crown Perth.
