Specsavers once again attended the annual London 50+ Show at Olympia exhibition centre in Kensington this summer.
The team, with help from a Hearcare champion from Specsavers in Hammersmith, offered free three-minute hearing screenings to attendees at the show, which saw nearly 4,500 visitors pass through its doors during the two days.
With appointments booked out early each day, as always the hearing booth proved to be of great interest to visitors, with almost 100 hearing screenings completed over the two days. In addition to hearing screenings, the team also carried out 120 surveys and offered helpful advice to show attendees.
Of those surveyed, the team discovered that 52% of people had not had a hearing check in over three years, despite Specsavers’ recommendation for anyone over the age of 55 to have their hearing checked once a year.
