During November and December, North Western Sydney residents are encouraged to put their hearing to good use in support of the Salvation Army’s Christmas appeal.
In the lead up to Christmas, National Hearing Care Castle Hill, Richmond and Windsor will donate $20 to The Salvation Army on behalf of every customer who refers a friend or loved one for a free hearing check.
“The Salvation Army helps more than one million disadvantaged Australians each year through their annual Christmas Appeal, which assists people in need with meals, shelter and hope at a difficult time of year,” National Hearing Care Managing Director, Michael Smith, said.
“We wanted to help in those in need, as well as support people in the community who may be experiencing hearing loss, which is why we decided to join forces with the Salvos over this critical time of giving,” Michael said.
Until 23 December, each visitor to National Hearing Care Castle Hill, Richmond and Windsor will be provided with a promotional coupon to share with friends or family members aged over 50 years old – the highest risk age group for hearing loss.
For every coupon that is redeemed for a free hearing check, National Hearing Care Castle Hill, Richmond and Windsor will donate $20 to The Salvation Army.
Michael said the initiative allows North Western Sydney locals to help a loved one and also someone in need.
“Whether it’s helping a friend or family member on the path to better hearing or supporting someone doing it tough over the holidays, it’s easy to help make a difference this season,” Michael said.
“Our support of The Salvo’s Christmas campaign provides an opportunity to raise awareness of hearing issues while also helping The Salvation Army continue their invaluable work over the Christmas period.”
Many people are unaware they may be experiencing hearing loss as the process can be very gradual, for this reason, it is vital to have regular hearing checks.
“We hope that the chance to support such a great cause will encourage North Western Sydney locals to take a proactive step towards protecting their hearing,” Michael concluded.
