Action on Hearing Loss is looking for people who’d like to combine their run with fundraising at the Larne Half Marathon on Saturday, March 19.

Participants will also be raising awareness and helping the charity to provide a range of support services and advice to family members, friends and neighbours with hearing loss.

Action on Hearing Loss will support you on the day, as well as providing fundraising tips, running tips and your own charity vest.

Nuala Muldoon, Fundraising executive for Action on Hearing Loss, said: “The Larne Half Marathon is a great opportunity for people to get active and raise money to support the free local services in their community.

“We run a free monthly hearing aid clinic in the Carrickfergus Town Hall, and by fundraising for Action on Hearing Loss you can help us to continue to make a difference and to create positive change for local people who are deaf or who are living with hearing loss and/or tinnitus.”
