Ilkley Talking Newspaper appeals for volunteers
4:18pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
Ilkley Talking Newspaper is seeking volunteers to assist in the production of the talking newspaper, which takes the local news out to anyone in the Menston, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Ilkley and Addingham areas who, for whatever reason, has difficulty with an orthodox printed newspaper.
Susan Storey, of Ilkley Talking Newspaper, said: “The sector we need help with deals with the simple administration that ensures that each of our listeners receives their newspaper. The work takes about an hour and is done with a partner, on Thursdays, at a time to suit the volunteers. We are currently working to a six-week rota so an hour every six weeks is not too burdensome. It requires no technical knowledge and training sessions are in place.”
