S4’s Kara Gilliespie attends Dalziel High School’s Deaf Unit and felt the Deaf Awareness Week that fell last week should be marked in a special way.
To that end, the enterprising Kara decided to see if she could do a charity collaboration with the Forty Society in Glasgow of which she is a big fan – and the society agreed.
School press officer Dawn Whitelaw explained, “Kara contacted the company herself, showed them some designs, worked with their graphic designer to come up with the final designs and colors.

“She even visited the store and warehouse for several business meetings and provided deaf awareness training and basic British Sign Language classes to Forty staff.
“Kara has been promoting the range via her Instagram account @cochlearkaz and on her YouTube channel of the same name. Both t-shirt designs, which feature the Forty logo and colorful abstract designs, are nearly sold out in all sizes. and there are only a few canvas bags left.
“Family, friends and staff from Dalziel’s Deaf Department were quick to purchase the limited edition items. Proceeds go to the WSDCS West of Scotland Deaf Children’s Society.”
