Looking ahead to the next 100 years of GDA
This morning the sun shone as GDA planted a special time capsule to commemorate the charity's 100 year history.
Included in the time capsule was the story of GDA's century, hopes for deaf people in the next 100 years and literature about the charity as it is today. The time capsule was planted alongside a cherry tree which, like GDA, will continue to blossom in to the future.
Members of the local deaf and hard of hearing community, who were attending November's Yumma Cafe, joined the GDA team for a small celebration ceremony, led by GDA's CEO, Sharon Bryant. Everyone was then invited to help bury the time capsule to secure it away for the next 100 years.
Thank you to everyone who joined us this morning and of course, to everyone who has or continues to support GDA and it's endeavours to support deaf, hard of hearing and deafened children, young people and adults living in Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire.
Here's the next 100 years of GDA.
