We have just received funding from West Lancashire Freemason’s. This will help us with our website and free tuition for members who might be interested in developing / learning computer skills.
We couldn’t function without kind donations and support. A huge thank you from us goes to:

Not at Standish Lipreading Society!
Thanks to Peter Gower, our members are forever improving life's core skills whether it is ability to lipread or perhaps how to shop on-line! Our thanks once again go to West Lancashire Freemasons for enabling this to happen.
Funding is how we run our society and provide our members with support and guidance. This is never easy to obtain so when we receive funding, no matter how big or small, we love to shout it from the rooftops.
THANK YOU STANDISH UNITED CHARITY
Sunday 14 May- Sponsored Walk
Do you fancy joining us in a walk to help raise funds for the Standish Lipreading Society on SUNDAY 14TH MAY 2017? (circular route approx 5 miles, along pavements) from Orrell Water Park.
If so, please register your interest on our Facebook page and don't forget to mention it to your dog (if you have one), who we are sure would like to participate in in the fun too!
Thank you Tesco and especially Sonia Richardson, Jamie & Wendy for being so positive and accommodating in allowing us to fundraise at the Tesco Extra store on Saturday 20th May between 10-3. The day would not have been such a success in raising over £200 without the immense generosity given by the Wigan public on the day ..... if you were one of these we are extremely grateful. Your kindness will help sustain and promote the viability of our Society and assist those with a hearing loss to become more confident and at ease when communicating with others.
