Roundabout is a monthly talking magazine which is sent out to people with sight problems or those who are unable to hold a newspaper or magazine. It is run by Hear and Now, a lottery funded project in Dawlish which also does a weekly talking newspaper.
Last week, we were interviewed by Roundabout to tell them more about the pen pal project we have been doing with Shaldon School. You can listen to the interview here (the March edition, our bit is from 24 minutes in).
Thank you to Jonathan and everyone at Roundabout for helping us promote this project, and to Dorith, Eugenia, Bea and Sadie-May for taking part in the interview.
Next up in the pen pal project, we are taking our clients into school again on the 30th March to share and compare memories on a range of topics, will be compiled in a book. After that we will be working with local artist, Tim Starkey, to do portraits of each other. These will be displayed at Funky Aardvark in Teignmouth throughout June.
If you would like to get involved in this project in any way, please contact us.
