Talking up the Coffs Coast Advocate

IF you can read aloud, Vision Australia would like your help to bring local news to people who are unable to read their local newspaper.

Vision Australia, the nation's leading blindness and low vision services provider, is looking for volunteers to help read and produce the Talking Coffs Coast Advocate and both male and female voices are required.

“This service makes a big difference to people who are blind or have low vision,” said Sara Wade, the co-ordinator of volunteers for Vision Australia.

“It helps them to stay in touch with what is happening in their local community,”

The Talking Newspaper Service is run by local volunteers.

Vision Australia currently has a range of volunteering roles available and invites budding news readers or people with competent administration skills to come forward.

If you are interested in volunteering you can contact Sara Wade on 6651 1863.

Anyone with a print disability who wants to receive the Talking Coffs Coast Advocate can contact Vision Australia on 1300 847 466.
