An Island man who volunteers his time for The Elizabeth Foundation which supports families with deaf and hearing-impaired children is set to take on the Pier to Pier swim this year.
Peter Clark often supports the Foundation through his voluntary work, using his computer, photography, and video skills to create content for it. He has seen firsthand how the Foundation supports children and families and the difference it makes to their lives.
The Elizabeth Foundation aims to facilitate the early diagnosis of childhood hearing loss and to provide outstanding education and welfare services to deaf children, aged 0–5 and their families, including children with Downs syndrome and complex needs. Over the last 40 years, it has taught thousands of deaf children to learn to listen and talk, including children on the Island.
The organisation is completely dependent on grants, donations, and legacies, along with sponsorships and fundraising to continue its work, so people such as Peter taking on challenges is vital to its continued efforts.
Peter will take on the swim later this year. If you’d like to support his cause, you can find his Justgiving page here.
