MORE than £280 was raised for The Talking Newspaper at Bromsgrove Morrisons store last Friday.
The charity provides a free service for residents who cannot read the news for themselves.
It helps them keep up to date with the latest news from the Standard or other newspapers. Each week charity volunteers record stories onto memory sticks for others to listen to.
Bromsgrove District councillor Sue Douglas (Lab, Sidemoor), who is a volunteer reader, helped raise the cash on the day.
