During this festive season Dubbo residents are being 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 Dubbo 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 appeal which began in November and will run until Friday, December 23, will provide each visitor to National Hearing Care Dubbo with a promotional coupon to share with friends or family members aged over 50 years old.
For every coupon that is redeemed for a free hearing check, National Hearing Care Dubbo will donate $20 to The Salvation Army.
National Hearing Care Dubbo audiologist audiologist Jeff Mathew and sco Jessica Boyd said when they had mentioned the appeal to local clients that they were more than happy to refer a friend.
“As soon as we tell them what the appeal is our clients are happy to get on board and help the Salvation Army,” Ms Boyd said.
National Hearing Care Managing Director Michael Smith said 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.
“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,” he said.
Michael said the initiative allows Dubbo locals to help a loved one and someone in need.
“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,” he said.
“We hope that the chance to support such a great cause will encourage Dubbo locals to take a proactive step towards protecting their hearing.”
