Free hearing test backed by actor

Have your say

A HARD-of-hearing actor is helping a Sheffield hearing centre soundcheck the region’s health.

Larry Lamb, who is best known for his roles as Michael in Gavin and Stacey and Archie in EastEnders, is supporting the Soundcheck the Nation campaign by Specsavers Hearing Centres and Action on Hearing Loss.

Specsavers at Crystal Peaks shopping centre will be one of 400 stores nationwide offering free hearing tests in-store and online in an aim to test one million people by October next year.

Sufferers can take an average of 10 years to take action on hearing loss, a recent report showed.
