Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind Looking for Volunteer Braille Teachers

A message from Chris Norman:


My name is Chris Norman, and I am the Service Development Officer at Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind (CRCB).

At CRCB, we run a couple of braille classes on a Friday, from 10:0, until 13:00 or so. Unfortunately, one of our teachers recently passed away, leaving a bit of a space to be filled. I would be extremely appreciative if you would share this message with your members in case anyone is interested at helping in a friendly and informal class for aspiring braillists, of all ages and abilities.

Ideally, we’d like a couple of braillists to help at our classes. We teach everyone from absolute beginners to more advanced braillists, so there’s no pressure to be an expert. Classes are in person, and our address is 33-35 Earlsdon Avenue South, Coventry, CV5 6TH. We are a friendly and accepting bunch, and I hear rumours of cake at the braille classes!

If anyone is interested, I would love to hear from them. My details – and those of the centre can be found in my email signature.

Thank you so much in advance, and I hope this email finds you well.

Take care and have a great day.

Chris Norman
