    MK HARD OF HEARING SUPPORT GROUP

    CHURCH OF CHRIST THE CORNERSTONE
    CENTRAL MILTON KEYNES

    The Milton Keynes Hard of Hearing Support Group is the only support group in MK for people with all types of hearing loss including dual sensory loss and all ages in MK

    The Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday in the month and the room has a built in hearing induction loop for people with “T” settings on their hearing aids

    Once a month the Group has a presentation relevant to hearing loss. This can include Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, MK Theatre, Thames Valley Police, SARC the equipment service for sensory loss in MK funded by MK Council, lip reading tasters, Audiology and Adult Hearing Services to name a few.

    Once a month we have a coffee morning where we get to know each other, share information, and support each other in lots of ways. Our aim is to stop isolation and depression and to increase confidence in each other again. This year we have been able to go out as a group and really enjoy ourselves by visiting Bletchley Park and assessing their audio equipment sets, which were really fantastic!

    Do come along to our meetings. You will be made very welcome! We are a lively group and supportive so do try it!

    8:30 pmThe Cock Inn, 16 High Street, North Crawley, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, Mk16 9LH

    The Cock Inn holds a quiz on the 3rd Sunday of each month and as you know, this month it is in aid of CIL.

     

    The quiz starts at 8:30 and finishes between 10 and 10:30, it is advisable to arrive early to get a table. It is a good atmosphere as the questions are hand-picked and not so hard that it becomes boring.

     

    Teams can have up to 8-people in them and each person pays £1 to enter. All entry money goes to the charity and we generally raise between £50-£80. It is not a fortune but it will also raise awareness of the local charity.

     

    We do not ban phones but ask people not to cheat. It is a fun, charity quiz, there is no prize and people who cheat spoil it for the others.
