Troy Cassar-Daley launches Hearing Australia's 2020 Celebrate Sound Tour


Country music star Troy Cassar-Daley will launch Hearing Australia’s 2020 Celebrate Sound Tour on Tuesday, 21 January 2020 from 2-3pm at the Hearing Australia bus, on Tamworth’s famous Peel Street. 
The Celebrate Sound Tour will see 12 big blue Hearing Australia buses travelling across Australia this year to offer some 2,700 local communities1 free 15 minute hearing checks*.
The buses are also visiting bushfire affected communities bringing support to Hearing Australia clients and anyone needing hearing help.
Troy is stepping off the big stage and onto a Hearing Australia bus to encourage people to get their hearing checked. As national ambassador for Hearing Australia, Troy is proud to get behind such a worthy cause.
“Music and hearing go hand in hand. That’s why I’m so committed to raising awareness around hearing health and showing people how easy it is to care for their hearing and celebrate the sounds they love.”
“I get my hearing checked every year by the team at Hearing Australia and I urge everyone to do the same,” says Mr Cassar-Daley.
As part of the Celebrate Sound Tour, Hearing Australia will be offering free* hearing checks to adults when they visit the Hearing Australia Bus. From Monday, 20 to Friday, 24 January people in Tamworth can hop on the bus to have their hearing checked. No appointment is necessary.
Mr Kim Terrell, Hearing Australia Managing Director, says that over 175,000 people have checked their hearing aboard the Hearing Australia buses since the mobile service launched in 2009.
“Our buses visit city centres and smaller regional towns to make it easier for people to get their hearing checked and access information on how to improve their hearing health,” adds Mr Terrell.
“We’re looking forward to making a difference to even more Australians this year by helping them stay connected to the people and sounds they love.”
The custom-equipped buses can operate in remote and harsh locations. They are staffed by Hearing Australia teams trained to provide hearing checks and support for people with hearing loss, including access to the latest high quality hearing devices.
