In the midst of cold December, everyone was feeling merry at Harrow & Brent United Deaf Club’s Xmas Party, which took place at Pinner Greenwood Social Club in Harrow.

It was a good turnout with children enjoying making Xmas cards and gift for their loved ones as part of the art& craft activity. There were huge laughter as children and adults played some fun games including pass the parcel and Chinese Whisper by using BSL and it was interesting to see how the message were conveyed at the start but changed at the end. The fun part was around seeing how people communicate with one another.

After delicious Xmas dinner, the  evening rounded with a special Celebrity guest – Louise Harley who recently appeared on BBC1’s “Withouts Limits: Vietnam” and shared her journey with our audience. Everyone  in the audience were enthralled by Lousie’s experience and followed with an interactive Q&A session.

Another surprise visitor came to our Deaf Club –Akshay Ruparelia, youngest millionaire, famed for his new online company Doorsteps.co.uk and made an appearance on BBC and ITV’s This Morning show. Akshay, who happens to be a Child of Deaf Adult (CODA), shared his experiences of his growing up, coming with his parents to Harrow United Deaf Club and his mum was a former Chair of the Club.

Akshay explained in his speech that he was pleased to be here and that his parents were part of the local Deaf community and felt so supported. He said he had another special surprise for us; he recently was invited to do a speech at a black-tie award event and received a fee of £250 which he donated to our Deaf Club.

Asif Iqbal MBE, President of Harrow United Deaf Club was pleased with the evening especially with two special guests, learning about Louise’s tough challenges at Vietnam and to see Akshay’s success as a young entrepreneur, supporting our Club. Both of them are a truly inspirational role models for our members.

From everyone at Harrow United Deaf Club, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018.
