Volunteers wanted for talking newspaper


The Carnoustie branch of ATNA – the Angus Talking Newspapers Association – is looking for one or two more volunteers to help out in the coming months.

The duties are light - about one hour per month.

News and articles from the Guide & Gazette are recorded each month on a CD, which is then sent to blind and partially sighted subscribers; actually not really subscribers since it a free service.

Each volunteer is asked to buy one Guide & Gazette per month, select interesting news and articles and then they meet with the technical operator, who records them reading the news.

This takes no more than 30 minutes.

And that’s it: an interesting and worthwhile task without taking up too much time.

Angus Talking Newspapers Association was established in 1982 by the late Stan Letton and has groups working in Brechin, Forfar, Kirriemuir and Montrose
