WOULD you enjoy working with a locally based charity but don’t have regular times you could give?

Evesham Talking Newspaper is looking for volunteers to help produce their popular, fortnightly recordings for their blind and visually impaired listeners living in and around Evesham.

The vacancies the charity currently has are for editors and technicians, who would receive training before joining our dedicated team and then back-up and support available as long as they feel they need it.

The whole emphasis of the newspaper is on keeping blind people informed of what is going on in their locality, keeping them feeling part of things and bringing some fun and laughter into their lives whilst doing so! It follows that it is worthwhile and also enjoyable being part of such a team!

Recording sessions take place in our local studio and last roughly 2 hours. If you find you are unable to make a session allotted to you it can be swapped with another volunteer. You would usually find yourself on duty 2 or 3 times a quarter and this can be a morning or evening session – depending on your circumstances.

This is a fulfilling, much valued voluntary service that can fit in around your usual life pattern. The members would be delighted to hear from you if are interested in finding out more of what would be involved and would happily invite you to the studio to meet with other volunteers, see the professional set-up and ask as many questions as you like before, hopefully, joining.
