THE Royal British Legion has started a new programme to help anyone who suffered hearing loss from serving in the armed forces.

The initiative has been launched to fund the purchase of hearing aids.

Vitality Hearing, based in high street in Northwich, will provide any eligible veteran the opportunity to be fitted with the very latest hearing aid technology, as well as aftercare.

The business will offer a free hearing test for any veterans interested and once this has been completed funding just needs to be approved which depends on individual circumstances.

The service is available to Cheshire residents.

For more information please contact Vitality Hearing on 01606 215 945.
