Free Bible for those living with sight loss

Torch Trust, the Christian Sight Loss charity, is offering a FREE audio Bible player to anyone who is losing their sight in the UK.

The audio players are the new Megavoice Pathways and feature David Suchet reading the New Testament and Psalms. This small MP3 player has an in-built speaker, preinstalled rechargeable batteries and comes with charging cable and headphones. The players have been tested by people who are partially sighted or new to sight loss, with positive feedback about their ease of use and content.

Anyone who is losing their sight can apply to Torch Trust to receive a player. This can be done online https://torchtrust.org/pathway/ or by calling 01858 438260. Each player will be dispatched with a lanyard, for ease of carrying, and instructions.
