Hearing for the first time

The Lion Foundation granted Southern Hearing Charitable Trust $50,000 towards operating costs.

Ricky McLeod (pictured) is profoundly deaf and for the first time in 40 years has just heard the sound of his own voice – thanks to a cochlear implant. Ricky is a different man since his implant surgery and says “I’ve still got a bit of a future ahead of me”. The grant SCIP received from The Lion Foundation means that we give people more than their hearing – we give them hope.”
