Exmouth Colour Bomb – We’ve gone virtual… It’s not to late to have your very own #Colourbomb

We know things are strange right now, but we also think the amazing Exmouth and South West communities are up for a bit of positivity. So, we’re taking the Exmouth Colour Bomb virtual and we need your help. 

During Deaf Awareness Week, 4th-10th May, we challenged you to have your own Colour Bomb day. It’s not too late to get colourful. You can still get involved by dressing up in your most colourful gear, posting your photo’s and spreading the cheer. To support you we’ve got some downloadable hats for kids you can colour in and the most colourful fitness video. We’ve also got the colours in British Sign Language (BSL) for you to learn. Go on, raid that wardrobe, have some fun with the kids or colleagues, and spread some positivity. 

Whilst the current situation means a delay to our amazing new Deaf Academy, we remain positive about opening soon, providing the facilities that help to support our amazing Deaf students and reduce isolation. If you are able, please donate during your Colour Bomb Day so we can fully equip the new Academy and change young Deaf lives.

You can donate to the Deaf Academy directly or set up your own Just Giving page and ask friends and family to help.
