Action on Hearing Loss Cymru Award
We were delighted that Action on Hearing Loss Cymru recognised Sherman Theatre's Deaf Theatre Club with an Excellence Wales Award in 2017 and 2018 -- the judging process was carried out by a panel of people who are deaf and hard of hearing and members of the charity. The awards recognise organisations that are working to improve services to the 575,000 people in Wales who have a hearing loss.
