Aycliffe deaf-led charity receives £3,000 becoming largest beneficiary of the Open North Foundation

A deaf-led charity based in Newton Aycliffe, Rare Rockets, is the most recent beneficiary of the Open North Foundation (ONF), having received £3,000, the largest grant awarded to date by the not-for-profit organisation, to help boost its website and marketing efforts.

The majority of the grant will go towards the charity’s In-vision work, which is a visual alternative to a text driven advert or message.

Involving a video message of a person using British Sign Language (BSL) and also including subtitles and voiceover, it is a particularly effective way to deliver messages to all within the deaf community and especially to those that do not speak English as their first language
