Celebrity supporters

We have a number of high profile celebrity supporters, who've been wonderful friends to our charity over the years. To celebrate our rebrand, we asked five of our key supporters to explain on video why the charity means so much to them. We hope it inspires other celebrities to support our cause and inspires people to take action if they have a hearing loss.

Rita Simons - actor

‘I’m an actress on EastEnders and my beautiful daughter, Maiya, is deaf and wears hearing aids on both ears. I’m supporting Action on Hearing Loss because I want Maiya to grow up and have the same opportunities as her twin sister Jamie, who has normal hearing.’

Anne Diamond - TV presenter

‘I have some form of hearing loss right now after about 25 years of wearing a television earpiece. That’s why I’m supporting Action on Hearing Loss - to reach out to the 4 million people in the UK who have some sort of hearing loss but have done nothing about it yet.’

Genevieve Barr - actor

‘I’m supporting Action on Hearing Loss because I’m profoundly deaf and I wear hearing aids on both ears. I’m very lucky to have had the opportunities I’ve had, and I want to live in a world where all deaf and hard of hearing people get the same opportunities.’

Annette Crosbie - actor

‘I’m sitting here with a hearing aid in each ear. That’s why I support Action on Hearing Loss because I know what it’s like to go slowly deaf, and I know what a difference it can make to your life to have a hearing aid.’
