Annual Appeal 2021
Calibre does such vital work in reaching those that wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience the joy of reading, whether affected by sight loss, dyslexia or a disability like Parkinson’s or long covid.
Sadly, this can sometimes lead to secondary concerns such as anxiety, loneliness and isolation, and no words can adequately express the comfort that an audiobook can bring. Audiobooks are an equaliser, allowing those with a print disability to enjoy the same books as everyone else.
[Calibre] has kept me in touch with reading. It has saved my mental health in many ways, when loneliness could have overcome me, keeping me company in many a quiet moment and helping me cope with my enforced blindness.
