Hear, hear for Loud Shirt Day

TWO little brothers in matching Hawaiian shirts have something in common with rugby league legend Wally Lewis - they're doing all they can to help out kids with hearing problems.

Children from Raceview Kids Early Learning - which Dexter, 18 months, and four-year-old Bailey attend - are being encouraged to dress "loud" on October 21.

Loud Shirt Day, a vital fundraiser for the Hear and Say Centre for Deaf Children, will pay for therapy and services.

The boys' mother, Shay Brook, said Raceview kids were happy to be involved in the campaign.

"We try to fundraise for a couple of things a month," she said.

Wally Lewis is the national ambassador for the appeal.

His daughter Jamie-Lee, born profoundly deaf, went through the Hear and Say Centre program.
