How it works

Each fortnight our Editors comb the local newspapers for articles which we think will be of interest to our listeners. These articles are then collated and our Readers record them onto audio computer files.

The completed files are transferred to a memory stick which, in turn, becomes the master for transferring the audio news files to over 50 other memory sticks. These sticks are then sent out, free of charge, by post to our listeners. When they have finished listening they send them back to us, once again, free of charge.

Link-Up provides each of our listeners with a free, easy to use, “Boom Box” audio player. Our Home Visitor goes to each listener’s home and demonstrates the simple controls of the “Boom Box” and, should any listener encounter a problem, our Home Visitor will call and solve it.
