A HONITON hearing specialist is launching a hearing aid battery recycling initiative - to raise funds for the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. During the initiative's first month (October), staff at the Specsavers hearing centre will donate 50p to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People for each person who brings in hearing aid batteries. Staff will ensure any donated batteries are recycled in an ethical way. People bringing in batteries to the store, at 121 High Street, will also be encouraged to give a discretionary donation to the charity. Dan Hill, hearing aid audiologist at Specsavers in Honiton, says: "It is important that we all do our bit for the environment, so we would like to thank the community in advance for helping us 'go green'. We hope everyone will show their support by bringing in their old batteries.
