Hear­ing check-up is a healthy habit

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

THE Wan­garatta Men’s Shed was vis­ited by the Aus­tralian Hear­ing bus on Tues­day for a free checkup to pro­mote men’s health.

Gra­ham Daglish from Aus­tralian Hear­ing said it’s al­ways good to get a check-up and the bus is an ac­ces­si­ble way to get a free one.

Lo­cal men’s shed mem­ber Peter Mudge said the group can al­ways ben­e­fit from health checks.

“As far as men’s shed is con­cerned it’s a mat­ter of keep­ing up with the health of our mem­bers, and get­ting the base­line of pos­si­ble hear­ing prob­lems,” he said.

“Con­tin­u­ing the checks over the years is also im­por­tant to see the im­prove­ment or lack of.”

Men’s shed or­gan­ised the bus to pro­mote men’s health dur­ing Movember, along with do­nat­ing $200 to Cr Ken Clarke’s mous­tache shave fundraiser.

Men’s shed is hold­ing a cancer aware­ness bar­be­cue on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14 at Wool­worths with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the Cancer Coun­cil.

You can buy a sausage, a raf­fle ticket for a lovely quilt, or just make a dona­tion.
