Harrow Asian Deaf club (HADC) were delighted to welcome their patrons, John Purnell GM QPM DL and his wife Margaret to join HADC’s Halloween party on Saturday 6th October 2012. The party was in a full swing, with 110 people and a mixture of deaf and hearing children joining Halloween theme activities including feeling the jelly, eating donut hanging from a string, drawing pictures, making balloons and pumpkin piñata, resulted in fantastic prizes. Everyone had lots of fun and wore fantastic fancy outfit.
Not only it stopped there, HADC also launched their first BSL informal Group, to encourage people to learn basic British Sign Language (BSL) together with Deaf awareness of how to communicate with deaf people. The 45mins session kicked off with basic BSL including some Halloween themes; there were lots of laughter and willingness to learn which made the group relaxed. The BSL informal group will be available next month on 3rd November 2012 at 6.30pm – 7/15pm with the theme of the day is Eid and Diwali celebration.

Both patrons were introduced to children of deaf parents and members of HADC, getting to know them and enjoyed being involved in some of the Halloween theme activities. They were also invited to cut the Halloween cake, beautifully made by one of the committee member, Sankeetha Balakrishnan who is well known for making delicious cakes.
HADC also unveiled their brand new logo, much to the delights of all members who were involved in the selection process of choosing the best logo designs.
