The long awaited National Deaf Children’s Society Big Bake Sale took place on Saturday (10 May) with a huge amount of people coming to show their support.
The NDCS Big Bake Sale event was help at the Bishop Ian Ramsey School in Medomsley on Saturday 10 May between 12-2pm. People from across the region turned up to show their support and contribute to the total amount raised to date, many purchased some of the huge selection of home made cakes provided, ranging from Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffins, to Carrot cake, and Fairy Buns.
At the event the organisers provided a raffle and tombola to help raising funds for NDCS. A huge selection of prizes were available, including hair and beauty accessories, books, flowers, chocolates, home made cakes, and a basketball signed by the Newcastle Eagles . The event itself wouldn’t have been possible without all the support provided by a dedicated group of volunteers, not to mention those that donated home made cakes, biscuits, and pies. Thanks to the NDCS Big Bake Sale and other events like it, a total of £1600 has been raised.
NDCS is a great charity that aims to bring changes to society to break down barriers for deaf children. It was founded in London by a small group of parents of deaf children, concerned by the impact the 1944 Education Act may have on their children they formed a group to bring up their concerns and help deaf children.
We aim to support all deaf children and young people, but put particular focus on those who most need our support.
They believe that deaf children can do anything other kids can do with the right support, and aim to provide that support wherever possible. Primarily NDCS is a parent’s organisation, dedicated to the needs of dead children and their family/carers.
