Dave Siseman, the charity's chairman, said: "Every week, our volunteers record a number of news stories, magazine articles and quizzes, which are sent out to about 60 recipients across the area.

"One of our volunteers made a short video of what we do, and hopefully we can use our Facebook page "Talking Times Fakenham District" to attract more people who may benefit from a talking newspaper, and new volunteers.
