Loud Shirt Day at Gillies Hospital
Loud Shirt Day is the annual appeal of The Hearing House and the Southern Cochlear Implant Paediatric Programme. Both charities support deaf and hearing impaired children with cochlear implants and hearing aids who are learning to listen and speak. Both charities provide free services to deaf children and their families, in order to help them reach their language potential.
The Hearing House is based in Auckland and provides services to families living north of Turangi, and the Southern Cochlear Implant Programme is based in Christchurch and provides services to families in the rest of the country. Loud Shirt Day donations go to the region in which they were raised.
The team at Gillies Hospital have been proudly supporting the Hearing House for many years, also holding the Ministry of Health contract to perform the life-changing surgery for children whose specialists have recommended cochlear implants.
