Best known as the drummer in the infamous rock band, the Smiths, Mike Joyce also lives with tinnitus. Here, he publically lends his support to Tinnitus Week 2018 and urges others to get involved. 

Tinnitus Week is taking place between the 5th and 11th of February so could you do me a favour and please show your support for the British Tinnitus Association?

The BTA is invaluable for sufferers providing sound advice, support and help in understanding the condition. This ‘awareness’ week is just that. Please post and share any announcements made by the BTA to spread the word and to help those who suffer from the condition and who haven’t touched base with the association yet.

In fact, you can help right now by signing up to Thunderclap (a flash-mob style social media message that gets issued at the same time and date during the week) You can do that really easily by following this link: https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/66547-tinnitus-week-2018

Thanks for your support, it really does make a difference.

Mike recently gave his support to the BTA by also becoming a Plug'em Ambassador, which is absolutely amazing.
