For over forty years the Talking Newspaper has produced a weekly recording of local news and magazine items which is sent out to blind and visually impaired people who live in Macclesfield, Bollington, Poynton, Prestbury and surrounding districts or who have links with the area. The Macclesfield Talking Newspaper is sent out each week by post to our listeners who then return the MP3 memory sticks to us ready for the next issue. The service is entirely FREE to our listeners and is delivered free courtesy of the Royal Mail.

All our volunteers are unpaid and our work does not attract statutory funding of any kind. We rely on our own fund raising activities and the generosity of donors to fund our work and thank The Macclesfield Express, Cheshire Independent and various Parish magazines who allow us to use their stories.
