Galloway Talking Newspaper Association for the Blind

Last updated: 09/11/2015

Description

The Galloway Talking Newspaper is a charity, run by volunteers, who produce a weekly audio-tape of news from the Wigtownshire Free Press and the Galloway Gazette. A magazine-tape of articles and interviews is also sent out regularly. The tapes are distributed, free of charge, to those who by reason of visual impairment, or physical handicap, are unable to read these newspapers for themselves. At present approximately 90 news-tapes are sent out every week and returned for re-use. If you, (or someone you know), is eligible, and would like a tape, please get in touch either through your GP, the Eye Clinics, held in Stranraer and Newton Stewart, or through Dumfries & Galloway Social Services, Sensory Services Department on 01387 253927.
