Gordon MP Malcolm Bruce has received a national award recognising his work with the deaf community.
Sir Malcolm was presented with the prestigious Joseph Maitland Robinson Award for Outstanding Contribution by deaf communications charity Signature. He was the founder of and remains vice-chair of the all-party Parliamentary Group on Deafness.
The MP regularly campaigns on key deaf issues in the Commons and recently submitted a bill seeking to set up a review body to look at the impact of communication support for deaf and hard of hearing people.
Sir Malcolm, who has a grown-up deaf daughter, said: “Signature is an outstanding campaigning charity and I am absolutely honoured to receive this award.
“It is testament to the ongoing work that I, and many others, continue to do in order to improve the lives of those in the deaf community.”
