Prisoners help blind and partially sighted hear news

Sat, 30 Jan 2016


Prisoners are helping blind people on the Island by reading and recording their news.

10 inmates collate articles and then read and record the week's local news explaining any of the attached images.

The weekly round-up is then sent out free of charge to around 120 blind or partially sighted people.

Home Affairs Minister Juan Watterson says it's encouraging to see prisoners making a positive contribution to the community:
