For the benefit of all and to keep this thread fairly prominent, perhaps those sending info would let us know here?

The Guide Cats for the Blind album series is produced to raise funds for a project run by the British Computer Association of the Blind (BCAB). Guide Cats Volumes 1 to 4 enabled the Association to create EyeT4All, a programme of life changing computer workshops for blind and partially sighted people. Our vision doesn't stop there.

With funds from Vol. 5 'Herding Cats' we will empower community centres for blind and partially sighted people throughout the UK to hold EyeT4All workshops for themselves. Guide Cats and EyeT4All 'Skill Share' will transform and enrich people's lives! These projects are increasingly important to blind people as more and more services are being made available online only.

What Is The British Computer Association Of The Blind?

BCAB is an UK organisation of visually impaired people who use information and communications technology. Their membership ranges from experienced computer professionals, to people who are beginning to explore the use of information and communications technology for leisure, study or employment.

BCAB aims to promote the use of computers and technology amongst blind and partially sighted people. We actively encourage people to explore the use of computers at work, in education and at home. BCAB stays up to date with recent developments in computing and technology, identifying relevant information and resources for blind and partially sighted people.

You are invited to visit the BCAB web site for further information.

British Computer Association for the Blind

How You Can Help:
The BCAB will benefit from any media exposure you can offer via press, radio play or word of mouth. Benefits will come to the BCAB and its members in two ways. The first benefit will be financial as all proceeds other than the manufacturing and the very minimum administration costs will see the bulk of all earnings going to the BCAB. The association will also be able to sell the CD direct to the public through their many fund raising activities.

The British Computer Association of the Blind wishes to thank all the artists and everybody involved for your total support of this project in your own time and at no cost. We would like to thank all those performers who contributed to the previous albums which have now raised in excess of £50,000

Les Barker's The Shipping Forecast read by Brian Perkins

Why not ask your local radio station to play a track from this new CD?

We bought the full set at Sidmouth. Each CD has one track by Les himself and the others are read by a variety of well known personalities - some in particular did a brilliant job. We found it very entertaining, great value for money (especially since some of them are double CDs) and all for a good cause.

bradfordian, thanks for the explanation. Only knowing of Les Barker's poem, I was rather puzzled about this, at first. It sounds like a very impressive organisation. I know several people in the USA who would benefit from the services, including our own Curmudgeon.

ATB,

Just don't play them in the car - at least not when driving along.
