John Hay MBE & Peter Jackson accepting the BDA Chair Award from Dr Terry Riley at the BDA's 2016 Conference and Annual General Meeting at Amnesty International UK on 19th February 2016.

Here's what Terry had to say:

The BDA is pleased that the BDHS was duly recognised for its outstanding work on the BDA Pictorial History book.

As Chair, I was privileged to present the BDA Chair’s Award to Peter Jackson and John Hay on behalf of the British Deaf History Society for their sterling work and leadership over these many years.

This award was a recognition the wonderful work the BDHS has done not only on the book, but the preserving and cataloguing the archives of the BDA and other bodies like deaf schools and individual members of the Deaf community, without this valuable work our Deaf Community, would have lost so many valuable artefacts books, and importantly, an integral part of our heritage for future generations.

Terry Riley, OBE
BDA Chair
