An exciting new role is up for grabs with a charity that has been established in Wisbech for 38 years.

The Wisbech and District Talking Newspaper is looking for an events and fund raising officer.

“This is an exciting and pivotal role within the charity and will entail organising fund raising and awareness events for the charity, with the support of the committee,” a spokesman said.

“It would also hold the liaison role with local groups and individuals who generously donate to us.”

The Wisbech and District Talking Newspaper was officially founded in October 1978 by Ted Rigg.

It is run by a group of volunteers whose object is to enable the blind and partially sighted to enjoy some local news items and magazine articles they would normally not be able to access.

They produce three recordings per month which listeners can receive on either tape or CD, comprising two one-hour issues of local news and one two-hour magazine of varied interest.

The tapes and CDs are sent out and returned free of charge using the Post Office’s Articles for the Blind postage.

As a registered Charity they rely entirely on donations, bequests, grants and fund raising events.
