A six-year-old boy from Aylesbury has won a national competition.

Monty, who hails from the county, won a poster drawing contest which was launched by Boots Hearingcare.

The campaign was created to inform parents about the importance of protecting their children’s hearing to prevent millions of young people from experiencing noise-induced hearing loss in later life.

Monty said: “I wanted to enter because I love listening to wildlife and listening out for animals when I go exploring.

“I love using my ears to hear what my friends have to say and for learning.

“I think hearing is important as you can learn so much from listening especially if you are quiet in the woods.

“ I have never been before.”

As part of the campaign, Boots Hearingcare surveyed 2,000 parents which showed that the majority (73 per cent) are worried their children will have a hearing loss in the future and almost half (43 per cent) think their children listen to music that is ‘too loud’.

Fathers shared the most angst around their child’s volume levels, with 79 per cent saying they were concerned versus 65 per cent of mums.

Feraz Ashraf, Senior Audiologist at Boots Hearingcare said: “Parents have a tough job when it comes to monitoring usage and volume levels of their children’s devices.

“But the reality is that if we don’t act now to protect children, in 10 years’ time there could be millions of young adults suffering with a hearing loss that could have been prevented.”
