This June, Signal Tinnitus Support was pleased to welcome 15 new people to Shrewsbury’s Tinnitus Support Group. The expert talk by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) was enjoyed by members who came together, both long-standing and new, and in total we hit a record total of 21 visitors.
Working Together for Tinnitus
Jessica Pollard, who gave the talk, said “It was a pleasure to be invited to speak… to provide information and advice to such open minded people and give them new ideas of ways they can manage their tinnitus.”
“Both regulars and new comers benefited from the question and answer session. It was great to see people being able to offer support and advice to others based on their own experiences.”
“The Signal Charity staff and volunteers create a very welcoming and friendly environment for attendees and strive to provide the best support and advice they can.”
Keith Coupland, who recently became a volunteer for both Shrewsbury and Telford Tinnitus Groups, particularly enjoyed the talk.
“Having been a member of Signal’s Support Group in Shrewsbury for a number of years now, I decided to become a volunteer and see if I could help in some way possible.”
“At the group meeting we had lots of new people present, showing to me how many people have this, feel left out and would like to know more.”
Keith continued, “I was very impressed by the BTA.”
A “thank you” from Signal.
Sarah, who leads the Tinnitus Project for Signal, added “We would especially like to thank the Shrewsbury Chronicle for their support in publicising the group, and the BTA for their expert knowledge and support.”
“The next Tinnitus Support Group is in Shrewsbury on Thursday 26th September. We have a speaker from a Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust’s Audiology. We are also holding a Tea for Tinnitus Coffee Morning at Meeting Point House on Friday 27th September. This starts at 10am and is a small gesture of thanks to the BTA.”
