'Hear all about it' Funding Sleaford & District Talking Newspaper
Sleaford REP Community Liaison Panel recently awarded Sleaford & District Talking Newspapers £1,500 from its Community Fund to help with its running costs and upgrade some equipment in the year ahead.
Barbara Roberts, Chairman of the Sleaford and District said on receiving the funding:
'We were absolutely delighted to receive the funding from the Sleaford REP Community Liaison Panel which has enabled us to continue offering a weekly service of local information from the Sleaford Standard and Sleaford Target to those with visual impairment.
This service was started in 1984 and relies on the generous donations and legacies which enable the service to continue. We loan a digital listening box to each customer and we have five teams of readers team of students from Carres Grammar School. A memory stick is copied in our Studio by our administrative/copying team and delivered each week by the Post Office. Listeners can then drop the yellow wallet with return label into any Post Box and the Panel funding continues to ensure that there is no charge for this service.'
If you know someone who would be interested in receiving this service with a Digital Listening Box on loan, please contact Barbara:
