“We are heavily involved with our local communities and we often meet blind or visually impaired people who could benefit from the service The Lichfield and District Talking Newspaper offers. “Whilst carrying out Home Fire Risk Checks in the area, we will be taking referrals for The Lichfield and District Talking Newspaper or vice-versa, it will help us to identify anyone who may be vulnerable to fire risks.”John May, chairman of The Lichfield and District Talking Newspaper added:
“The newspaper began production in November 1981 and now has 160 recipients, a figure which is currently increasing by three new listeners a week. Our service is completely free to anyone who is registered as visually impaired or blind and we record onto memory sticks every Thursday and post out to our listeners. “We are focussed on Lichfield and South Staffordshire however we can provide our service wherever there is a need for it. Our mission is simple: to provide the best possible news and entertainment service to the blind and visually impaired and whilst doing that, we can also help to identify those of our listeners who could benefit from a free home fire risk Check from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.”For more information about The Lichfield and District Talking Newspaper visit www.lichfieldtalkingnews.co.uk or to book a free home fire risk check contact: 0800 0241 999.
