The Great Big Hearing Check

Great Big Hearing Check February 2017

It's time to take action on your hearing

Over 11 million people in the UK are affected by hearing loss, and of those, nearly half remain untreated.

That’s why we've teamed up with Boots Hearingcare for the 3rd time  to encourage everyone in the UK to get their hearing checked during the Great Big Hearing Check 2017. Our shared aim is to raise awareness of the importance of hearing health, urging people to take action on their hearing loss sooner and be empowered to live the life they choose.

Visit your local Boots Hearingcare store and pick up a leaflet with more information and a voucher explaining how you and your loved ones can arrange a free 15 minute hearing check and receive 150 points on your Boots loyalty card when you do.  Not only that but for every voucher redeemed, Boots Hearingcare will donate £1 to the on-going work of Action on Hearing Loss.  

Between 1st and 28th February, you'll find us in Boots stores across the country as part of the Great Big Hearing Check. So make sure to drop in and find out how to get started on looking after your hearing, so you can continue to enjoy your favourite sounds for years to come.
