UK members of audio enthusiasts forum Head-Fi have donated money the Cambridgeshire Deaf Association for the second time.
A spokesperson for the group said:
“On Saturday 25th April 2015 a group of audio enthusiasts held their annual meeting in Bar Hill Village Hall.
“We are members of an online forum (www.head-fi.org) that concentrates on personal audio, so equipment like headphones, amplifiers and digital audio players.The forum rationale is very much about supporting each other and offering help and advice to new members.
“Every year we hold a national event and attendees bring their gear for fellow members to audition and try out. This years charity raffle raised £1,300 and we would like to donate this sum to the Cambridgeshire Deaf Association.
“Our reason for choosing to support the CDA is simple, as an organisation it provides invaluable assistance to deaf people enabling them to live independent lives, which is crucial to a persons sense of well being and personal fulfilment”
Andy Palmer, Managing Director of CDA said: “The generosity of Head-Fi members in the UK is something we really appreciate. Their support means we can work on important projects supporting the independence of deaf people in Cambridgeshire. For example on improving health outcomes to finding ways for deaf people to receive better care and support to running clubs and events.”
“Without the support of the people in Head-Fi UK we wouldn’t be able to do all the things we do. Thank you!”
