I WRITE on behalf of the Saffron Walden Talking Newspapers for the Blind.

We were very honoured to be invited by Waitrose to take part in their trial green-disk scheme and were very pleased to accept.

Every week we record the news from the three local free papers so that our listeners are part of the community - even if they are housebound.

Waitrose's very generous cheque was much appreciated as we are all volunteers and rely entirely on fundraising to exist.

So, thank you Waitrose for including us and thank you shoppers for your supporting green-disk votes!

Liz Marson-Starling, chairman of the Saffron Walden Talking Newspapers
