Appeal

The British Tinnitus Association (BTA)’s Tea for Tinnitus campaign is asking people across the country to sign up and hold a tea party to increase awareness of the condition and in turn, donate as much money as possible for the charity.

Tea for Tinnitus is being run throughout June to help raise vital funds so they can support the estimated 10 per cent of the UK population who are living with the often debilitating hearing condition. The campaign will help the BTA to continue to provide vital resources such as its tinnitus helpline and email support, free to attend information days, information leafl ets and booklets and much more. The BTA receives no government funding so every penny raised through these tea parties will be vital in helping the approximately six million UK adults who live with persistent tinnitus.

David Stockdale, chief executive of the charity, said: “We’re so grateful to everybody who’s got involved in the Tea for Tinnitus campaign so far, by organising and hosting their own events and we hope many more will follow suit. Gathering friends, family and work colleagues together to help us raise money which will go such a long way and allow the BTA to maintain and enhance the support we already provide. “Tinnitus can be a very diffi cult condition to manage but we know that with the right support it does get better and people can get their quality of life back so it is vital we can continue to provide the best help possible to those who need it which is what Tea for Tinnitus is all about.”
