The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service 2015 - Bankie Talk Talking Newspaper

QAVS 19 

 

The Bankie Talk Talking Newspaper was established 25 years ago to provide taped recordings of the local newspaper for the visually impaired. Today, over 100 visually impaired adults receive the talking newspaper every week, the talking magazine each month, and have access to a vast library of books all produced on CD and delivered to their home. Over 8000 young people who are either visually impaired, or have difficulty accessing the written word, have access to a magazine tailored especially for them each month. Volunteers come from all age groups to provide this exceptional service.
