Penpals are what we provide ???

We at Deafax Trust would like to invite the children in your schools to join with others in schools who have joined the Fun Directory and who are helping each other to practice their communication and literacy.

The directory is published on our web site at http://www.webcom.com/deafax/welcome.html and we will publish a copy on the REDCEMS conference at the end of April so why not use the following form and join in before then.

Fun Directory of Deaf and Hearing People!

Promoting Communication and Literacy

Its more fun when we have something to talk about. A golfer may not have too much to say to a chess player but two footballers or two chess players may chat for hours.

That's why we want to know your interests so that others will chat you up. Our sponsors, the READERS DIGEST CHARITABLE TRUST want us all to enjoy communicating more and more.

If you would like to join in or help we would like you to tell us a bit about yourself and your interests.
