Tell us about your role and volunteering experience at Radio Horton:

I worked with Singapore Broadcasting company for a short while on the radio, I did the Banbury Talking newspapers for 14 years and currently I’m a reader for the Charity CAlibre – I read whole books for people with visual impairments. More recently I’ve helped Radio Horton with the Bygone Banbury project.

I look forward to being able to ward visit, and interviews with various people outside and in the community, care home interviews.
