Cambridge audiologist practice Hearing Healthcare Centre, which specialises in hearing healthcare and the fitting of state of the art hearing devices, held a special 50th Anniversary Open Week this week to raise money for Help for Heroes. Attended by the Deputy Mayor of Cambridge, Lions Club International charity representative Vic Truluck, photographer from Cambridge News, clients, manufacturers, staff and local residents, the birthday celebration helped raise several hundred pounds for the launch of Hearing Healthcare Centre’s 2014 fundraising campaign for their chosen Charity of the Year, Help 4 Heroes.
Hearing Healthcare Centre’s Practice Manager, Andy Coughlan, said, “It was a wonderful week meeting new and existing clients and having their support to raise valuable funds. We chose Help for Heroes as our Charity of the Year to support the crucial help they provide to our armed forces and their families. We are very proud to be celebrating 50 Years of successful business in Cambridge and we are honoured that the Deputy Mayor of Cambridge, Cllr George Pippas joined us together with Help for Heroes representative, Mark Linney. We are also very grateful to our manufacturers and partners for their generous donations of raffle prizes.”
Bryn Parry OBE, CEO & Co-Founder, Help for Heroes said: “We’re delighted that the Hearing Healthcare Centre have chosen Help for Heroes as their Charity of the Year and we would like to say a huge thank you to all their staff, clients and suppliers for their support. Their backing demonstrates how people across the country have chosen to ‘do their bit’ for our wounded servicemen and women.”
This week’s event offered visitors the chance to have a free hearing test, enjoy complimentary celebration cake and beverages as well as support Help for Heroes by purchasing raffle tickets, buying charity branded pins and wrist bands, making cash donations or, as many of the manufacturers did – donate a raffle prize. Prize donations came from GN Resound, Widex, Phonak, Unitron and Oticon. Support was also thankfully received from local newsagents, a local cake company and several others.
