Until we move to our new Deaf Academy in Exmouth, our current site requires a great deal of maintenance to keep it as welcoming and comfortable as possible for our current students.

During half-term a team of six volunteers from Handelsbanken in Exeter spent a day giving the TV room in our residential area a new coat of paint. While our students were away, our volunteers freshened up the room into a light and sunny space for our residential students to return to after their break.

Pictured here are our painting volunteers: Malcolm, Chris and Ellie (it was Ellie’s first time at painting!)

Staff from Handelsbanken have spent two years fundraising for us, one member of staff raised sponsorship and cycled from London to Paris! Thank you Handelsbanken Exeter for your support. It is hugely appreciated by all of us Exeter Deaf Academy.
