Win prizes at Pasifika with Hearing Therapy

Win prizes at Pasifika with Hearing Therapy

The Hearing Therapy team will tempt festival goers with some exciting giveaways at Pasifika Festival this weekend.

“We examined 98 pairs of ears at Pasifika 2017 - and that was great. But this year we want to see even more,” says hearing therapist Therese Leach.

Anyone who stops for an ear check will go in the draw to win a hamper. And there’s even a fun, Hasbro family game up for grabs for the person who correctly guesses the number of ear plugs in a jar.

Leach says the key message she has for people at Pasifika Festival is just how easy it is to access the free hearing service from Hearing Therapy.

“We have clinics in community settings across the city - from South Auckland, to central and west Auckland and as far north as Albany.”

Hearing Therapy also welcomes the inclusion of family, friends and other communication partners at appointments.

The aim is to offer a service that’s easy to access, convenient and supportive of the individual needs of clients.

“One of the things that surprised a lot of people we spoke to last year at Pasifika was that they don’t need a referral from their GP to get help with their hearing. They can just call 0800 008 011 and make an appointment to see their local hearing therapist at a time that suits them.

“And the fact the service is free and funded by the Ministry of Health is obviously a big bonus too,” says Leach.

Visit the Hearing Therapy team at site H204 by the Air New Zealand stand at Pasifika Festival, Western Springs on 24-25 March 2018.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions.
