Volunteers

We need your help – volunteers required for Darlington Talking Newspaper

Have fun, make friends, and participate in a rewarding activity at Darlington Talking Newspaper.

Although our recording sessions are carried out on Wednesday evenings each week, volunteers are also required on various days and evenings during the week, we are sure to have a time slot to suit you!
