Pippa Middleton supporting deaf school

The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton, is supporting Mary Hare School, the school for deaf children has revealed.

According to a report on the Mary Hare Website, Ms Middleton recently visited the school and was inspired to give it her help.

A percentage of the money raised from book sales made at a recent signing Ms Middleton held have gone to the school.

She held the signing in a nearby pub having been to see Mare Hare Primary School’s December school play, Mary Poppins.

Mary Hare says that it is dependent on fundraising in order to help children who are deaf and these children’s families.

It says Ms Middleton’s support is set to help it raise funds as well as promote its school to people with deaf children.

“Mary Hare spends a lot of time and energy finding new ways of telling families of deaf children about its work,” explained school principal Tony Shaw.

He said the school very much valued Ms Middleton’s support, adding that it would help raise the profile of the school.

Mr Shaw explained that he wanted every UK family that had a deaf child to be aware of every option that is available when it comes to the education of their child, including Mare Hare School.

Youngsters from the five to 19 years of age attend the school. It is holding a sixth form information event on April 12th for prospective students to attend.

There they will be able to talk with teachers and young people who are currently attending the sixth form.

An example of Pippa’s sister Kate Middleton’s work to help charity, meanwhile, is the fact that she is the honorary patron of EACH - East Anglia Children’s Hospice.

Our online hearing test takes only three minutes to complete and can be found on our website. This might provide you with a first step if you think you may be suffering some degree of hearing loss. It shouldn’t replace a visit to Leightons for a full hearing test, however.
