South Lakes Talking Newspaper - 13/08/2014
'The South Lakes Talking Newspaper is a voluntary organisation which every week puts together extracts of
news & items of general interest from the Westmorland Gazette which are recorded & sent to listeners who are blind or visually impaired.

The system involves USB memory sticks which are simple to use in a player provided free of charge by the Association.

The memory sticks are sent out in a special wallet via the GPO's Articles For The Blind Freepost service,and are returned each week
by the listener,using the same service.

There are over 60 volunteers working on a rota basis to produce the 90 minute recording. The service is entirely free & funding is
through voluntary giving & donations.

The Talking Newspaper is highly valued by our listeners who come from all over the county and for many it is an invaluable link to their
local community.
