Deaf News: Action on Hearing Loss CEO posts video urgently asking supporters to bridge £2.5 million shortfall in funds

Posted on February 26, 2014

The CEO of Action on Hearing Loss, Paul Breckell, has posted a video urgently asking the charity’s supporters to bridge a potential £2.5 million shortfall in the charity’s funds.
