Chairman’s Welcome

Welcome to the Oxtalk website. You probably know already that we are the charity who produce weekly local news recordings for the blind and visually impaired of Oxford and its environs. We have been doing this for over 30 years now and intend to continue to do so for many years to come! The bulletins are produced by a group of around 70 volunteers who edit, read, copy and deliver around 100 usb flash drives each week in the Oxford area. Without the volunteers we could not run our service so please do make contact if you would like to help us in any way, perhaps by becoming a volunteer.

The major challenge that Oxtalk faces as we hurtle through the 21st Century is to keep pace with technological developments to ensure we provide the very best service to our listeners.

Fundraising is a key element for all active charities and we are no exception.  We are very active on the streets of Oxford holding charity collection days and we also apply for grant aid if we are eligible to do so. Please do look at our donations page however if you would like to help to fund the work we do.

Finally I hope you like our user-friendly site and are easily able to find the information you are looking for. Do let us have your comments on how we can improve it however, or if there are any specific questions you would like answers to.

Best wishes
Margaret Simpson (Chairman)
