Why not call your local TN and ask if you can help them? There are lots of different roles – here are some examples of things you could do:
You will select news stories from local newspapers for the recording. These should be a true representation of the week's local news coverage.
Variety is the spice of life, and different voices and accents make things interesting for the listeners. You will usually be given a voice test.
You'll record each edition onto a master copy of a cassette tape/CD or memory stick. Full training will be given.
After the recordings, you'll copy, check and put the finished product into wallets ready for posting.
It'll be your job to keep records of listeners and monitor recordings sent out and returned.
A very important job! The TNs can't manage without funds. You'll raise money any way you can. Read Fundraising Rollercoaster to see how it can be done.
