Every week, volunteers come to our community centre to record stories from the local Bucks Herald. They are members of Aylesbury Talking Newspapers who record the news items formerly onto cassettes but now onto memory sticks. These are then sent to their list of blind and visually impaired listeners who are thus kept up to date with local news. When listened to, the memory sticks are posted back to church for the group to recycle. As a church, we would like to thank them for the excellent work they have done over the years. They are part of a national Federation of Talking Newspapers. So if you have a friend or relative somewhere in the UK, click here to find out where their local branch is and what newspapers they cover. Similarly, if you live locally and know someone who might benefit or if you want to volunteer yourself to help in some way, click here for the local contact details.
