A MOTHER has appealed for people to keep a look out for her son’s lost hearing implant.
Harvey Bancks has been deaf since birth and had cochlear implants at 18 months and then again at seven years old to help him hear.
He started at Canon Slade School in September but on his walk home to Bromley Cross last week he lost one of the £5,500 implants which is usually attached to the side of his head.
Mum Lisa Bancks said: “When it is throwing it down with rain I tell him to take one out because they are not waterproof. Obviously he has to keep one in because he needs to hear traffic. So he took the right one off and somewhere between school and home he has lost it.”
The implants which 11-year-old Harvey has on both sides of his head are like a hearing aid with a wire that goes to a small disk.If anyone has found it they can contact Mrs Bancks HERE.
