November is Hearing Awareness Month and is the perfect time to show the importance of having your hearing checked as well as letting those who do suffer with their hearing, know that they’re not alone. Scrivens are thinking all things ‘hearing’ for the entire month of November and need you to be involved. Here at Scrivens, we have a range of different activities planned for Hearing Awareness Month, all designed to encourage people to have their hearing checked.
In our branches, we are all aware of the importance of hearing, but do we appreciate the value of listening? With this in mind, we have created the ‘Listen In Awards’ that will coincide with all of our Hearing Awareness Month activity and is also a great way to show our appreciation for those that care. We are on a mission to find the nation’s unsung heroes, those that take the time to listen and chat to others when they’re in need. Whilst we want to promote the importance of having your hearing tested, with hearing comes listening, which we think is something to be celebrated.
To nominate someone who you think should be recognised in your community for our ‘Listen In’ awards, you can fill out a form in branch or use our online form. We will be taking nominations from 29th October – 29th December 2018 and announcing a winner in January 2019. Show your appreciation for someone that cares!
The fun activities for Hearing Awareness Month don’t stop there and, to mark the occasion, we are also giving customers a half price upgrade to rechargeable hearing aids. These are extremely popular with hearing aid wearers as it means no more fiddly battery changes and allows for 24 hours of continuous use with a super-simple charging solution. Seen as the future of hearing aids, these new devices don’t require any separate batteries and generally make wearing hearing aids more convenient.

Half price upgrades to rechargeable hearing aids means customers will be saving a huge £200 on their purchase. This offer is only available during Hearing Awareness Month – so pop into your local Scrivens branch to make the saving!

Even though a high proportion of people value hearing as being important to them a staggering 53% have never had a hearing check! A hearing screening takes around 15-20 minutes and will let you know if you need a more in depth hearing check and it’s free. Find your local branch and request a free hearing appointment today.
Hearing loss can be difficult to notice as it happens gradually over time. That’s why it’s important to have regular checks as you might not notice when it starts.
