The town council has agreed to spend the cash, to be paid out of the Memorial Hall project funds and its maintenance fund.
The hearing loop has to be installed so that the hall, in Norwich Street, meets disability discrimination act requirements.
It would be taken out and used again in the event of a refurbishment of the hall, which the council is planning.
