Brian Cooper from Luton

Brian Cooper from Luton has been chosen to win a free pair of digital hearing aids from high street hearing specialists Hidden Hearing.

The award is part of Hidden Hearing’s support for the National Campaign for Better Hearing, to help raise awareness of the importance of having annual hearing tests at 55.

Brian had been struggling with his hearing for a while, the little conversations with family and friends had become a problem and his wife was at her wits end. He’d had tests before but this time thanks to the National Campaign for Better Hearing he was nominated for a free aid by Audiologist Rob Mclean at Hidden Hearing centre in St Albans. and his whole family are delighted to get the old Brian back.

Local Audiologist Rob Mclean who tested and nominated Brian, says, ‘Many people ignore their hearing problems until it’s too late which can affect their health and quality of life. This is particularly important for those aged in their 50s and above. This campaign is a great initiative and we’re encouraging everyone in the area to ‘Test Your Ears At 55 Years’.

Brian Cooper says, “I’ve never won anything before so to be gifted back my hearing is amazing!’
