At 94, Helen receives services from the Blind Foundation and has also sponsored a talking book in loving memory of her family.

“I am the only living member of my family and wanted them to be remembered with a talking book.  I didn’t want to sponsor a love story but I love a good thriller. Listening to talking books is my favourite pass time.”

Helen donated the book ‘Five minutes alone’, a thriller by Paul Cleave for everyone using Talking Books to be able to read.

“I started a degree in literature when I was 60 and it took me 10 years to complete part time.”

“After that I joined the Blind Foundation and it is has meant that I have been able to continue my passion for reading by means of Talking Books.”

Helen says, “The Blind Foundation does such a fine job by caring for people with seeing problems.”
