ORB Recruitment Pledge Kickstarts Cast’s Christmas Campaign To Further Engage With Deaf Creatives in Doncaster

A leading Doncaster recruitment firm has pledged £2,500 to support Cast’s Christmas campaign, that will in turn improve creative work with Doncaster’s deaf artists and young people.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge, which aims to reinforce Cast’s commitment to the ongoing improvement of work to engage with deaf communities, is asking audiences and the wider Doncaster community to raise £5k over one week, starting on 29th November. 

To kickstart the initiative ORB Recruitment, which is based in Balby Carr, has pledged to match every penny donated up to £2.5k, joining the Candis Club, which is doing the same, meaning that up to £5k of donations in total will be matched.

Doncaster has the largest deaf population outside of London, and Cast, a registered charity, is aiming to programme more work that is accessible through captioning or BSL interpretation. It is also Cast’s ambition to employ more deaf artists and to offer a greater variety of activities for young deaf people.

Deborah Rees, Director of Cast, said: “We’re absolutely committed to improving the quality of our work with and for deaf communities across Doncaster. We’re so pleased and grateful to be able to partner with ORB Recruitment to support us, and the general public, with The Big Give to continue opening up opportunities, particularly for young deaf people. We hope your support will help us strive to be sector leaders in this area.”

Stewart Olsen, Group CEO at ORB Recruitment, said: “As a local business we are always looking for ways to support the community we are part of, particularly around Christmas. We’re already big admirers of Cast and all the work they do in Doncaster, but this campaign to further engage with the deaf community, and make everything Cast does as accessible as possible, really struck a chord with our team. “We’re thrilled to be involved and to pledge £2.5k, which we hope will encourage others to give what they can to help this important campaign.”

The Big Give Christmas Challenge begins at 12pm on Tuesday 29th November and ends at 12pm on Tuesday 6th December. For more details on how to give and for other ways to support, visit
