Debbie Reynolds is a single mother of two, who is hard of hearing. In 2003 she was in debt, had no qualifications and was struggling to make ends meet. In spite of her problems, she enrolled as a volunteer for a local deaf charity and in April 2006, set up the School of Sign Language which now employs a staff of 28 deaf and hearing workers and volunteers. Debbie was Silver Winner in the Barclays Trading Places Award in 2007.
