The Ribble Valley Talking Newspaper was kindly sponsored by The Factory Shop last year and we are now looking for a local business or organisation to sponsor us this year.
The Talking Newspaper is a charity run by a committee and many volunteers, editors, readers and administrators. Each Thursday evening an editor and four readers, on a rota, make a CD from the news in the Advertiser and Times. It is then copied and posted to about 70 local blind and sight-impaired people. The padded pouches are returned through through the post ready for the following week.
We do not receive any grants and so cover our running costs with donations and proceeds from coffee mornings. These costs include CDs each week, computer and copying equipment, padded pouches, rent on a studio, insurance and admin. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Please telephone 01200 425482.
