With reluctance, we must stop sending out our programmes on memory sticks until restrictions are lifted. There has been a surge in the pandemic locally, many of our volunteers are in the high risk category, and we have a duty to protect them. We will continue to record the programmes from our homes as we have done throughout the pandemic.

Programmes can be listened to on our website ("Latest Edition" page), via the British Wireless for the Blind (BWBF) App on smartphones, and Alexa. We look forward to better days ahead when we can reinstate full service.

Donations are a very welcome source of urgently needed money. If you are able to make a donation, however small, your gift would be very much appreciated.    If you are a UK tax payer please consider making your contribution through Gift Aid. This gives us an extra 25% in reclaimed tax from HMRC at no cost to the donor.  This is most easily done through the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) website: www.cafonline.org  Select ‘Donate to a Charity’ then Select ‘Chichester Area Talking News CIO’ (charitable incorporated organisation) or ‘Chichester Area Talking News’ – both names are valid – and decide how much you wish to donate.


If you would like to find out about being a volunteer please contact us with your details and and we will get back to you. We also have specific situations vacant from time to time.

We also invite comments and suggestion from our listeners.   Subjects for inclusion in the quarterly INSIGHT Magazine are particularly welcome - all the more so if you, as a listener, can be part of the feature.  We have portable recording equipment which means we can come to you.   If you have an idea - why not contact us and let us know?
