Hearing loss affects 1 in 6 people in the UK and it takes 10 years on average before those who have noticed a loss in their hearing to choose to seek help. Research has also proven that other than a reduced quality and experience of life, hearing loss can also lead to cognitive decline resulting in conditions such as depression and dementia.

The Hearing Care Centre, which is a family-run business with 26 centres across East Anglia, will hold a special Hearing Care Day

July. Complimentary hearing assessments will be on offer at the event, as well as professional advice from The Hearing Care Centre’s award winning team to help you hear to your full potential. Karen Finch,

founder and

lead audiologist at The Hearing Care Centre said “Hearing loss is a real issue in the UK. More often than not it's a gradual process, it's not always easy to tell if you're losing your hearing. .” To find out more information or to book an appointment, call The Hearing Care Centre on 01473 230330 or visit wickhammkt

Returning to Helmingham Hall on 28th July, Suffolk Dog Day has become a much-loved canine fixture in the Suffolk calendar. With crowds of over 6000 people and their pooches attending every year, why do Suffolk people love it so much and what’s new in the canine kingdom this year? We take a look behind the scenes and hear news about the event’s new giant SDDSuperstar poster dog, and the two broadcasting legends who will be lending their support as very special guests at this year’s event. Suffolk Dog Day, sponsored by Skinners Pet Foods, has been raising money for over

a decade, created and run

by a loyal band of Suffolk Community Foundation volunteers every penny raised goes to Suffolk charities, over £500,000 so far on literally

thousands of

vulnerable Suffolk people’s lives right across Suffolk. ‘The team have been

working really hard all year to bring a new fresh look to our very special day. We have a tried and tested formula that everyone loves, but there will be a few surprises on the day too ’ says Top Dog Chairman and Volunteer Richard Cooper. ‘In 2017 we introduced Breed Parades for the first time and over 3,000 people voted.

And then there is the new face

of Suffolk Dog Day, Wilson the huge St Bernard. Suffolk Community Foundation’s Head of Public Affairs Tim Holder said ‘We needed a bigger dog for a bigger return to Helmingham Hall. We had over 5000 entries and we chose the largest and most beautiful of them all. Wilson really is a stunning young champion. We’ve also found a place on all our roadside boards for our other finalists CavaPoo Willow, CockerPoo Darcie, Jackshund Thunder and Pomeranian Simba. It’s been so much fun working with them all. There is also exciting news

of some extra special star dust being sprinkled at this year’s Suffolk Dog Day by a familiar face to Suffolk Dog Day and ‘National Treasure’ Peter Purves and making a very special guest appearance for the first time this year is former

Anglia TV presenter and Author Christine Webber. Peter had led the team in The Helmingham Ring every year and Christine will be joining the team in The Suffolk Ring.

event really be bigger and better than ever – Event Producer, Laura Ripman is brimming with confidence ‘We are all pulling together to make sure that this is our best Suffolk Dog Day ever! It’s an event for the whole family in the most beautiful surroundings. Suffolk’s love of dogs seems to remove all the barriers. Any dog walker will know - go for a stroll in the park and you are much more likely to be spoken to - it breaks down so many barriers. It’s not Crufts, it’s not about doggy excellence in that way - it’s an event by the people of Suffolk for the people of Suffolk, its brilliant fun and every penny that’s raised helps someone else in Suffolk who is perhaps not able to enjoy life as much. It’s perfect, what’s not to love. Tickets are available on the day priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children with a family ticket for a very reasonable £25. For more information about the event visit www.suffolkdogday. com
