SNAPSHOT: Up and away

A group of deaf children from Wales came face-to-face with realistic models of extinct animals as part of a day trip to Edinburgh by plane last week. RNID Cymru Counselling and Befriending Service organised the adventure day for the children, most of whom had never been on a plane before. The trip included an interactive science exhibition, an open-top bus tour of Edinburgh and a ghost tour.

There was also an opportunity to meet children from the National School for Deaf Children in Scotland. Jim Edwards from RNID Cymru said: "The idea came about when the children were asked what they would most like to do; going on an plane was top of their list. We contacted airlines and were delighted when bmibaby offered 50 free places on the Cardiff to Edinburgh flight."
