Practicing what we preach

The entire reasoning behind Big Ear Radio is to encourage real social progress for our listeners living with disabilities and disadvantage. This is as much of a pleasure for us as it is for the people we support. Just recently we have been working with Piers and his P.A. Leah, providing work experience in a Wool and Needlecraft shop.
