New Patron for Action for Deafness: Judy Parfitt
|Judy Parfitt is well known actress who most recently played Sister Monica Joan in "Call the Midwife".
Judy became interested in becoming a patron for AFD after her friend adopted a boy, unaware the boy was profoundly deaf.
He was given hearing aids to help but Judy couldn't help but wonder how frightening it would be to be shut off from the world.
Judy has a mild hearing loss and wishes to support those who can help with hearing loss.
Judy also does a lot of work with Dementia UK and resides in Mid Sussex.
