Talking Books are a lifeline
Can you imagine your life without sight? How would you cope, how would you live your life?
Can you imagine no longer being able to read your favourite book, your weekly magazine or your daily newspaper? Think of the sense of isolation and loneliness that losing your eyesight would bring to your life.
Every six minutes someone begins to lose their sight. Right now there are 2 million people living with sight loss in the UK. For over 80 years, RNIB’s Talking Books service has helped create a lifeline to the outside world for blind and partially sighted people in the UK.

How to Sponsor a Talking Book

How would you like to change someone’s life and sponsor a Talking Book? To deliver each new Talking Book we need to raise:

£2,500 for an adult book
£1,500 for a children’s book
We have lots of tips to help you hit your chosen target, and you will be surprised at how quickly your total will rise. You could raise this money with family, friends or colleagues. How about getting ten local businesses in your town to all agree to raise £250 and you will then have sponsored a Talking Book as a community!
The exciting part is that once you’ve hit your target a personal dedication can also be added to the book, which will then be there for evermore!
Register your interest today, and we will be in touch with more information.  You can help the thousands of people who have escaped loneliness and isolation, once again find their freedom through the magic of Talking Books.
