A charity which helps people with hearing problems is extending its services to the Fens.

Cambridgeshire Hearing Help, formerly CAMTAD, has now received funding to bring its work to Fenland.

The charity works with the local audiology services and Cambridgeshire County Council Sensory team to provide hearing aid servicing and battery supplies to NHS hearing aid users in local, easy to reach venues.

It also advises on additional equipment such as television amplifiers and telephones.

The charity is urgently looking for new volunteers in Fenland, especially Wisbech and March.

Director, Frances Dewhurst, says: “Our volunteers find the work extremely rewarding and stay with us for many years.”
