Hearing check-up is a healthy habit
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.
