Black Country Talking News

The Talking News is a free service which is sent out each week to almost 200 people living with sight loss to help them keep in touch with their community. We also produce a monthly magazine, also sent out to almost 200 people, where we interview local people of interest.
We are reliant on donations to help cover our production costs so if you like what you listen to then please make a donation and help us to continue to provide this vital service.
