Australian Hearing at TWC

Bonza BingoSo we “hear” that some bingo players may have trouble “hearing their numbers”…

On Friday 26 February 2016, Australian Hearing will proudly sponsor a full Bingo Session by allowing our members and guests to stay on top of their “game”.

Whether you’re playing a game of bingo or watching you favourite television show, good clear hearing is important. Research shows that hearing loss is a significant issue in the local community with one in six Australians experiencing hearing difficulties. Is this you?

Australian Hearing is raising awareness about hearing one one “Bonza Bingo” session at a time. We will proudly host our first “Bonza Bingo” session on Friday 26 February 2016. Bingo books are available from 11am with eyes down commencing play from 11.30am.

Expert representatives will be available in the club on the day to provide advice on hearing health and free hearing checks to anyone that may be concerned about their hearing loss. The Australian Hearing test takes just 15 minutes and is a quick way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear.

As an added extra, Australian Hearing has kindly donated some hampers as bonus prizes for full card prize games. Now we’re “listening”.

Old Couple KissMs. Linda Brindle, representative from Australian Hearing says “Hearing loss touches almost every Australian in some way or another. We know that typically people wait for seven to ten years to seek help, which often not only affects the person with hearing loss, but also their family and friends”.

“By working together with Toronto Workers Club to host Bonza Bingo, we hope to show how easy it is to make hearing checks a part of a regular health routine. Good hearing is a key element to staying connected with family and friends, and enjoying every moment and conversation”.

Australian Hearing is the country’s leading hearing specialist, researcher and largest provider of government funded hearing services. We welcome Australian Hearing to Toronto Workers Club and look forward to an ongoing relationship with our members and guests “hearing” the benefits.

You can share the Bonza Bingo Session via the Facebook Invitation Link. Invite your family, friends and share it. You never know, you may just assist in improving someone else’s well-being.

Claude’s Mowerthon

Claude ‘the mower man’ Harvey pushed his famous coin collecting lawnmower over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to complete his latest fundraising ‘mowerthon’ from Newcastle to Sydney.

The 70 year old fundraising superstar has clocked up over 18.000 kilometres and more than $800,000 to help child protection advocate Bravehearts protect Aussie kids.

Claude recently finished a 10-week fundraising trek from his home town on the Gold Coast to Newcastle earlier this year, where he hit the $1million fundraising milestone for the charity.

The mower man has dedicated the past decade to helping Bravehearts make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child – a cause that is close to his heart.

Claude stopped into the Club recently to have a feed, meet a few of the locals and to promote awareness of his fundraising efforts with Bravehearts.

All donations that Claude collects go towards Bravehearts’ support services for children and families affected by child sexual assault, as well as Bravehearts’ educational program “Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure” which teaches children in schools and childcare centres important safety skills.

The education program has visited more than 12,500 children across 65 schools in New South Wales in 2014 alone.

Founder and CEO of Bravehearts, Hetty Johnson says Claude’s efforts have made a remarkable difference of children all around Australia. Claude not only raises much-needed money for Bravehearts, but also inspires everyone he meets along the way to protect our children.

You can follow Claude’s journey on the Bravehearts Website¬†or on Facebook.
