NADJ Raise £300 For Action On Hearing Loss
At the NADJ’s Annual Conference & AGM earlier this year, the association added an element of fun to the day with the inclusion of a game of Rock and Roll Bingo. Everyone in attendance got involved in the game, which involved prizes for the winners, and also raised money for charity Action on Hearing Loss.
The game offered prizes for the first person to get a line on their Rock and Roll Bingo card as well as a prize package for the person who called 'house!' Prizes were very generously donated by Mike Stead from Phase One in Darlington, Simon Asquith from DiscoTechnology in West Yorkshire and Martin Harris from needadisco.com. However, the most important element of the game was the fundraising that went on - all ticket money was collected and the National Association of Disc Jockeys matched the amount raised on the day.
A grand total of £300 was raised and the Association donated the money to Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the Royal National Institute for Deaf People - RNID) as it is a charity that deals with hearing issues, such as tinnitus, that may affect DJs as we all work with loud music for prolonged periods of time. The NADJ has since received a letter of thanks from Mumtaz Suleiman, Community & Events Fundraising Events Assistant for Action on Hearing Loss.
Mr Suleiman said: "Your support is really appreciated by everyone involved with our work, especially as deafness is disability which often goes unnoticed. It is thanks to the thoughtfulness of people like yourselves that we are able to continue our work with deaf and hard of hearing people.”
"Thank you for your kind donation and I hope you continue to support the vital work we do here at Action on Hearing Loss in future," added Mr Suleiman. The NADJ would like to thank all of the players on the day as well as their supporters: Rock and Roll Bingo, Phase One, DiscoTechnology and needadisco.com.
