Thank you Mr Durell!

Thank you Mr Durell! Sam Kershaw of Funeral Partners

Thank you Mr Durell! We’d like to say a massive THANK YOU! to Mr Durell of Felixstowe who popped into Funeral Partners branch Farthing Funeral Service last week. To donate his late Aunts’ hearing equipment. A whole shoe box full of fantastic hearing aids and TV streaming systems. All beautifully packaged, still in their boxes. With all the instruction booklets tucked tidily in the bottom. It was lovely to see all the items had really been appreciated. We’re always delighted to receive all donated hearing aids and equipment.

Any of the larger more complex items such as the TV streaming kits can also be used. These won’t be useful in the Developing World or Eastern Europe. We send them to Southern Hearing. We’re absolutely thrilled, thank you!

Not forgetting both the Sam’s!

Thank you Mr Durell! Thank you, also, to Sam (another one, not Kershaw – more on him later!) in branch. She will be packing them up for us. We’ll make sure they go on to do really good things!! Thank you!!

We’d also like to say a massive THANK YOU to Sam Kershaw (LHS in image on front of post) for his support for our initiative to recover, repurpose and redistribute hearing aids after their first wearer.  That they can go on to help others at home and abroad.  We first met him at the National Association of Funeral Directors Annual General Meeting in Cardiff.  We were so grateful for how receptive everyone was there.  It was fantastic to learn more about their industry.  In particular Sam Kershaw who has helped us incorporate the Funeral Partners Funeral Directors into our network of collection centres. 


If you have any no longer needed hearing aids you would like to donate, you can find the nearest place to drop them off on our interactive map here.  Or it is super easy to look up the closest hearing aid drop off point on our A-Z list organised alphabetically by County here!  We’re adding centres all the time.  We would love to hear from you if you’d like to register to be one.  If you can’t, yet, find a place close to home and can’t post them to us (address here!), please do get in touch (here!) and we’ll see what we can do to help!
