Store raises funds for Otley & District Talking Newspaper
9:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A supermarket’s tombola has swelled the coffers of Otley & District Talking Newspaper.
Staff from Otley’s Waitrose store held the event at Otley Carnival and raised £211.59 for the charity, which makes recordings of local news sources and sends them to visually impaired residents.
The Talking Newspaper’s management committee would like to thank the supermarket for its support, and is also appealing for new volunteers.
Anyone interested in helping fill a variety of roles, including those of editor, producer, technician and reader, can find out more by contacting chairman Trevor Davey on (0113) 284 2976 or secretary John Barker on (01943) 461401.
The group has been providing the service, to keep blind and partially-sighted people abreast of local news, since 1984.
