Restored Hearing show their continued support for the British Tinnitus Association, 26 November 2015
Restored Hearing has pledged their on-going support of the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) by renewing their agreement to be a Corporate Member of the charity, helping to raise awareness of tinnitus and to support the BTA’s services helping those affected by the condition.
The BTA is the only national UK charity solely dedicated to those with tinnitus – a term that describes the sensation of hearing a noise in the absence of an external sound. For the last 35 years the charity has supported the one in ten people in the UK who experience tinnitus and in particular the 10% of those with tinnitus who find it severely affects their quality of life.
Rhona Togher, CEO of Restored Hearing said: “Restored Hearing has always been a supporter and admirer of the British Tinnitus Association. They are always extremely helpful in spreading the word about the tinnitus awareness campaigns we do and supporting us in general. We are delighted to be working with the BTA again this year, we particularly enjoyed their Annual Conference, which we were a part of. We admire and support their commitment to tinnitus research and making information available to those who suffer from tinnitus.”
Helen Goldsby-West, Head of Fundraising and Development for the British Tinnitus Association, said: “Last year, the BTA supported over 335,000 people. To do this, we are reliant upon the generous donations of our fundraisers and supporters, and contributions from Corporate Members like Restored Hearing. We receive no government support and need to raise over £500,000 this year to continue our much needed work. The Corporate Membership scheme is a great way for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to our work and the wider tinnitus community. We have enjoyed working with Rhona and all the team at Restored Hearing and we are extremely grateful to them for their on-going backing in our endeavours.”
About the British Tinnitus Association
The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is an independent charity which supports thousands of people who experience tinnitus and advises medical professionals from across the world.
The BTA is the primary source of support and information for people with tinnitus in the UK, facilitating an improved quality of life. They aim to encourage prevention through its educational programme and to seek effective treatment for tinnitus through a medical research programme.
The support the BTA offers to 335,000 people per year who are affected by tinnitus is reliant upon the generous donations of their supporters and fundraisers. They receive no government support and need to raise half a million pounds each year to continue their UK wide support. Donations can be made via www.justgiving.com/BTA
Not an illness or disease, tinnitus is a term that describes the sensation of hearing a noise in the absence of an external sound. The noise can have virtually any quality. Ringing, whistling, and buzzing are common, but more complex sounds may also be reported. Troublesome tinnitus can be very distressing for the affected individual, and issues may arise with sleep, concentration and mood. However, in many cases, subtle changes in people’s environment can address these issues, and improve quality of life.
The experienced team at the BTA understands the impact that tinnitus can have on the lives of those who experience tinnitus and those who live with them, so seeks to provide the most appropriate and expert advice and information free of charge – via a confidential freephone helpline on 0800 018 0527 and online at www.tinnitus.org.uk. The BTA can also post printed and audio information and advice.
