Description

The Trust provides Christian fellowship and literature for visually impaired people. Literature is produced in braille, large print (sizes 17pt, 20pt, 25pt & 30pt) and recorded on audio CD, USB and in DAISY format. It is circulated world-wide in the form of magazines, books and booklets and also from a free lending library service which caters for all ages.
