Peterborough Talking Newspaper was founded in 1980 to provide free access to the local news for blind and partially sighted people in the area
We are a local registered charity run entirely by unpaid volunteers. We do not operate from a centre but to keep our costs low, recordings are done in volunteers' homes and the copying and delivery service in a hired room in Peterborough.
In addition to our weekly news we offer a monthly magazine service of topical and entertaining articles. We also have a visiting service to support people who need setting up with the service.
Our 250 recordings go to about a quarter of local registered blind people in Peterborough.
Peterborough Talking Newspaper is a great ally of the Peterborough Association for the Blind and we both actively support each other through promotion and joint activities.
How it works
Once a week you will receive a free digitally recorded memory stick through the post. It’s usually around 80 minutes long and includes articles read from the Peterborough Telegraph. In addition, there’s a monthly magazine which includes some items specifically for those who are visually impaired, as well as feature articles, comedy slots, entertainment messages and thought for today.
Once you've finished listening you simply return your memory stick in the yellow plastic wallet provided, post free, and wait for next week’s news to arrive. It’s as simple as that!
