Burnham-On-Sea's Sounds and Voices group receives £3,640 windfall

A Burnham-On-Sea group that provides local news on audio cassettes for blind and visually impaired residents has this week received a windfall of more than £3,000.

Sounds and Voices provides cassette tapes of news and information on a regular basis to 75 blind and visually impaired people in the Burnham area, plus disabled people who have difficulty leaving their home.

On Wednesday (January 14th), the group received £3,000 from County Councillor Rose Parsons from her Community Fund, and a further £640 from Burnham Lions Club.

The group's John Bryan told "We are delighted and very grateful for these donations, which will be used to buy new digital recording equipment to make it easier to produce our cassettes."
