The amount raised on the day, which includes several generous donations, totalled £2166. All monies raised will go to President Peter Spalding's charity, the Croydon Hearing Resource Centre.
To assist CHRC in diagnosing the correct level of hearing loss, they require a Tympanometer. This much-needed instrument is used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum and the conduction bones by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal.
Each Tympanometer costs around £9,000 and Rotary Club of Croydon members are focusing their energies on raising funds towards the cost of this important instrument.
