Next week marks the start of Tinnitus Awareness Week, where up and down the country people will take part in the annual Tea for Tinnitus campaign event.
The event aims to get more people talking about tinnitus, managing the condition if you have it and how to prevent tinnitus. A Tea for Tinnitus party is a great way of raising awareness and much needed funds for the British Tinnitus Association (BTA). The BTA receives no government funding so every penny raised makes a difference by helping to pay for their support helpline, information leaflets, events and other services. You’ll also be supporting important medical research into causes and treatments for the condition.
How do I get involved?
If you want to help the BTA all you need to do is decide on a date during Tinnitus Awareness Week (8th-14th February) when you would like to host your Tea for Tinnitus party and get planning. (If you can’t organise an event on that week not to worry, any extra dates for fundraising are welcome!)
Invite as many friends and family as you like, hold it at home or at your place of work, and get as many people as possible involved to make it a success. When you host your party, just ask people to make a donation for their tea and treats.
You don’t need to be a member of the BTA to hold an event and you don’t need to have tinnitus. By being involved you will be able to help the BTA support the millions of people in the UK who have tinnitus.
Once you have signed up, you will be sent a pack with all the information you need to host a get together. You can find all the details you need on www.teafortinnitus.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for getting involved and helping make a positive difference to people affected by tinnitus.
