Quota Bundaberg gets loud to support deaf kids

Put on your loudest shirt and make some noise as Quota Bundaberg hosts a Loud Shirt Lunch to support children with hearing loss and their families.

Quota Club of Bundaberg publicity officer Jas Haster said the Loud Shirt Lunch would help the Hear and Say Centre provide early intervention to children with hearing loss.

Quota Bundaberg has been helping disadvantaged local women, children, hearing impaired persons and others for more than three decades.

Jas said for children with hearing loss getting the support they needed as early as possible would give them the best chance of minimising the long-term effects of their diagnoses, while also helping them reach their full potential later in life.

“Every year we encourage the Bundaberg community to get loud and support Loud Shirt Day,” Jas said.

“Swapping your usual shirt for a bright and bold shirt can go a long way.”

The Hear and Say Centre is Queensland’s specialised provider of audiology and speech pathology for all people with hearing loss. 

Jas said Loud Shirt Day was an opportunity for the community to wear its brightest clothes to raise money and help give the gift of sound and speech to deaf and and hearing-impaired children.

“This year, Loud Shirt Day will fall on 21 October and Quota Bundaberg will hold a fundraising lunch on Sunday 23 October at the Young Australia Hotel,” she said.

“There will be prizes for best dressed as well as a multi-prize draw to help raise money for children with hearing loss.”
