Last year marked our 20th anniversary and we decided to challenge ourselves to raise more money for charity than we ever had done before...
We pledged to raise £20,000 for our chosen charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, a charity which has created over 900 partnerships between deaf people and hearing dogs across the UK.
The money was raised with the help of our fantastic customer base, the general public and our employees. Amongst a wealth of activities, staff waded through mud and freezing water in the Whole Hog Challenge, guests ate as many puddings as they liked at a Pudding Club Night, over 400 people attended our very popular quiz nights in May and November and over 100 tubes of Smarties were emptied and filled up with 20 pence pieces by patients. We also made a contribution ourselves at our 20th anniversary party (pictured above).

The fundraising pot was also topped up by Barclays Bank, who generously matched some of the Hearing Care Centre’s events up to £1,000 each time.
Karen Finch, Managing Director of The Hearing Care Centre, commented “We are ecstatic to be able to present Hearing Dogs for Deaf People with this huge sum of money – which will go such a long way towards the brilliant work that they do. Thank you to everybody in the local community who has supported us during this feat, we hope you will continue to support us in our future fundraising in 2019”.
