Andrea’s 12 hour silence for Speak With IT

Andrea’s 12 hour silence for Speak With IT

A big thank you to our trustee Andrea Reas who completed a 12 hour sponsored silence on 10th June raising funds for Speak With IT.

In Andrea’s own words: ‘As everyone I know has realised, I love talking!! I decided to challenge myself to stay quiet for 12 hours. This is so that I can, in a very brief way, experience what it’s like to be unable to speak such as might occur after a stroke. Loss of speech after a stroke has a devastating effect on the stroke survivor and their family and friends. I’ve seen this while working for Speak With IT both as a Volunteer and more recently as a Trustee and I want to help this fantastic charity to continue to provide the brilliant support it gives.’

Well done Andrea who at the time of writing this has raised over £400 for Speak With IT! Good work!!
