Deaf swimmers in the pool

The National Deaf Children’s Society would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted, shared and supported The Deaf-Friendly Swimming Project in the 2016 National Lottery Awards… WE WON!!

We have a glitzy, red carpet awards ceremony to go to in London this week and we will be on BBC One on 12 September!  The prize money will help us change the lives of even more deaf young people in Scotland.

Tune into Lottery Stars on BBC One at 10:45pm on Monday to see NDCS’s Deaf-Friendly Swimming Project in action!  John Barrowman will present us with the National Lottery Sports Award 2016.

The Inclusive Activities team will also be rubbing shoulders with Katie Derham, Max Whitlock, Ainsley Harriott, Anita Rani and Kimberley Wyatt.
