We, at Hearing Healthcare Centre, hold charity close to our hearts and like to do our bit to help when we can. It was our pleasure to invite some of our war veteran clients and their friends to a special remembrance day afternoon tea. Residents of the local retirement home, Langden House, were also invited, including special guest 102-year-old Percival Reed, who regularly supports charity events.
“We’re delighted that Hearing Healthcare Centre has chosen to host this Remembrance Day event and would like to extend our gratitude for its support. The war in Afghanistan may be nearly over but for many members of the Armed Forces and their families their battles are just beginning. We won’t let them battle alone. This year’s anniversary events for WW1 and D-Day remind us how important this is and the shared respect between the veterans of all generations. On behalf of everyone who will benefit from your support, thank you,” Bryn Parry OBE, CEO & Co-Founder of Help For Heroes.
“On behalf of Hearing Healthcare Centre, I would like to welcome you all in remembrance of all those who have served in the armed forces over many years and to help support the organisations who do so much for the many injured personnel and families, past and present,” Chris Carr, Hearing Healthcare Centre Director and Head Audiologist.
We were lucky enough to be joined by some very inspirational local people, as well as Cambridge Mayor Cllr Gerri Bird. We all enjoyed some traditional tea and cakes whilst socialising with some amazing people. The event proved very successful and we are very happy to announce that between us, we managed to raise £400 for our Charity of the Year ; Help for Heroes and The Royal British Legion. The raffle prizes were supplied by ourselves, as well as a number of our generous suppliers, including Widex, GNResound, Phonak, Unitron and Oticon.
