A Montrose opticians is urging locals residents to donate their old, unwanted hearing aids in support of Sound Seekers.

Specsavers is collecting hearing aids to donate to the charity which supports deaf and hearing-impaired people living in developing countries.

Bridgeen Johnston, director at Specsavers in Montrose, said: “In Britain we are used to having access to excellent hearcare on our high streets but most people in developing countries are not as lucky. It’s important we do what we can to support those with hearing impairments there.

“In addition, we’re dedicated to helping those on our doorstep with a fantastic Hearing Centre team in store. Our staff are always on hand to offer advice on our hearing services, hearing loss, protection and prevention.”

Customers can get involved in the appeal by dropping off their old hearing aids at the store on the High Street.

They are recycled and the money raised is used to fund the charity’s work in developing countries.

The store is also selling Miffy badges in aid of Sound Seekers.
