Anna Pugh receiving the tinnitus gold award from Colette Bunker.

A King’s Lynn support group  has been awarded the Gold Standard by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA).

The group, led by local hearing therapist Anna Pugh, enables people with tinnitus to meet others with the condition and share tips and coping methods.

Colette Bunker, from the BTA, said: “Support groups can really help a person lead the best life they can, and Anna and everyone at the Lynn group are dedicated to helping people overcome the distress tinnitus can cause, and we are delighted to be able to recognise their hard work.”
