We are constantly seeing stories of people in our community stepping up and helping others.

Sarah Bloomfield is a hospice nurse living and working in Mt Pleasant who recognised there as a need for those impacted by hearing loss or deafness to be able to read people’s mouths. With everyone wearing masks, that was proving to be difficult. So Sarah began making masks with a clear plastic panels so that you can see people’s mouths as they talk. Some of those masks have even ended up with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services for use with its interpreters. She even has graciously provided a free pattern for others to make these masks as well.
