Sense International has today announced the appointment of celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke as their newest celebrity ambassador.

Celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke is delighted to become the charity's newest celebrity ambassador, helping to draw attention to the charity's vital work supporting deafblind people in Bangladesh, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Peru, Romania and Uganda.

Nicky Clarke said: 'It's an honour to work with Sense International to help them to change lives of deafblind people across the world.

"As a hairdresser, I simply can't imagine what it would be like not to be able to see or hear - my senses are integral to my work, to my creativity and to being able to practise my craft, so I'm really impressed by how Sense International work to help people learn new skills and embrace new vocations in order to participate, connect and contribute to their communities. I can't wait to get started!'

James Thornberry, Director of Sense International, said:

'Sense International supports deafblind children and their families in East Africa, India, Bangladesh, Peru and Romania and without our help and support deafblind children in these countries will lead short and lonely lives. We work in partnership with local organisations to provide expert support and services to deafblind people and demonstrate to governments that deafblind people are worth investing in.

"With this support, deafblind children can finally receive the medical and educational support they need. They can learn to communicate, to develop self-care skills, receive an education and perhaps find a job and rather than being excluded they can thrive and live as valued human beings. Without our supporters we would not be able to carry out this work and we are delighted to welcome Nicky Clarke as a Sense International ambassador."
