A national charity is inviting Kilmarnock residents to pop in to its pop-up shop in the town centre to get their hearing checked and discover the range of services that are available to support people who have hearing loss.
Action on Hearing Loss Scotland will be welcoming visitors to the pop-up shop at Celebrate Kilmarnock, 89 King Street KA1 1QD between 10am-4pm on Tuesday 1 October.
Teri Devine, Director of Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, said: “We’re setting up our pop-up shop to give people in Kilmarnock town centre – especially those who are older and more likely to have age-related hearing loss – the chance to get their hearing checked and find out about the huge benefits of getting hearing aids fitted as soon as hearing loss has been diagnosed.
“Representatives from our Ayrshire & Arran services will be available to highlight how we inform and support local residents who are Deaf or have hearing loss whether it’s cleaning or re-tubing NHS hearing aids, demonstrating assistive technology which can make everyday life easier, assisting older veterans as part of our Unforgotten Forces partnership activities or helping individuals with their social security applications.
“Visitors will also have an opportunity to find out about our charity’s membership, volunteering and fundraising activities as well as the chance to share with us their views about other services they would like to see offered to Kilmarnock residents who are Deaf or have hearing loss.”
