CHILDREN, including two-year-old Lydia Smokrovic, are learning how to listen and speak at the Telethon Speech and Hearing Centre in Wembley.

Funds raised from Artitude – an annual exhibition and sale of fine art – will go towards helping children like Lydia who attends the Centre’s Chatterbox Playgroup Program.

Australian Capital Equity sponsors Artitude’s Open Category Art Prize, which will be announced at a cocktail party on Saturday at Burswood.

Australian Capital Equity executive assistant Kathy Bohn was one of the founding members of the Artitude Planning Committee.

“We are pleased to support this wonderful event which benefits hearing impaired children like Lydia,” Ms Bohn said.

Brian MacKay, Alex Spremberg and Janis Nedela are past recipients of the award.

This year, Telethon Speech and Hearing hopes to raise more than $200,000 to fund its therapy-based early intervention programs and services for hearing impaired children and their families.
