Diverse summer golf day set to raise money for Hearing Dogs

We don’t just like to talk about you and your business, we love to hear about local charity events too. We have a charity of the year at each venue and you can speak to your local coordinator to learn more. Here we hear from Hearing Care Centre about a local event, how you can get involved, but first did you know;

  • There are over 800,000 people in the UK who are severely or profoundly deaf
  • Over half (55%) of people over 60 have a hearing loss and 90% of patients over 81
  • 4 million people have hearing loss of 35 dB or more in the better ear but don’t wear hearing aids despite the huge benefits this would give them (link 4million report)
  • Action on Hearing Loss research shows that there are now 10 million people in the UK with hearing loss of at least 25 decibel (dB) in the better ear – 1 in 6 of the population.
  • People leave on average a 10-15 year delay from the onset of hearing loss to addressing their condition
  • Evidence suggests that GPs fail to refer up to 45% of people reporting hearing loss, for an intervention, such as a referral for a hearing test or a hearing aid
  • The most common type of hearing loss in the UK is among people who are gradually losing their hearing as part of the ageing process.   * Stats taken from Action on Hearing Loss


One local business has announced their inaugural charity golf day, which promises to be and a fantastic opportunity for networking whilst raising money for a good cause and just as fun for complete beginners as it is for seasoned golfers,.

The Hearing Care Centre is an award winning family-run hearing care company which has 26 clinics across East Anglia. They will be holding the event on Wednesday 17th July 2019 at Seckford Golf Club, near Woodbridge. All proceeds from the event will go towards Hearing Dogs For Deaf People.

Beginning at around 1pm, golfers will enjoy 18 holes of golf across this stunning course, while those who are new to golf will receive three hours of tuition with a PGA golf professional. The two groups will re-join at the clubhouse to enjoy a locally sourced BBQ dinner, and conclude with an official awards ceremony. There will also be some fantastic prizes which all attendees will have a chance of winning during the event.

Entry for the event is £50 per person and includes the golf, BBQ, snacks and a donation to the charity. Golfers wishing to enter the tournament itself must enter in teams of 4 players, and discounts are available if companies enter more than one team.

Karen Finch, Managing Director of The Hearing Care Centre said “As a local business which has its roots in Ipswich, we are always keen to connect with and support other local businesses. Therefore when organising our charity events for the year, a Golf Day seemed the perfect way to do so while raising money for a great cause.”
