Introduction

Organisation Name
Avon Talking Magazine For The Blind
Description

Avon Talking Magazine for visually impaired people is a small registered charity covering the greater Bristol area.

Our aim is to provide blind and partially sighted people in our community with a monthly - free of charge - recorded magazine which brings colour, laughter, information and an opportunity to keep in touch with events, activities and pastimes.

Each month our Bristol studio produces a recording containing a variety of articles which, along with those of general interest, often include recipes, stories and gardening. A separate recording details news items of local and national interest.

We have hundreds of listeners who enjoy our free service and benefit from the information we supply. Their ages vary and many tell us the magazine is thought of as an old friend; reliable and always there.

The recordings are made, copied and distributed by an enthusiastic and committed group of volunteers who willingly give of their time and effort at no cost to the magazine or our listeners.

The Royal Mail delivers the recordings in their distinctive yellow envelopes as part of their free ‘Articles For The Blind’ service.

Our magazine is enjoyed by listeners all around the greater Bristol area and from as far away as Southampton, Dundee and Macedonia in southeastern Europe. The volunteers welcome listeners’ opinions and sharing memories the articles have stirred.
