Sir George Young MP for NW Hants spent an enjoyable half hour taking part in a social action project in Manchester earlier this month.
He went to the Conference’s specially designed, world-class ‘Social Action Zone’ within its conference venue and recorded a short story for Calibre Audio Library, a self-funded charity that operates an audio library for visually impaired people, free of charge.
They joined a number of Ministers, Members of Parliament, Party Staff, journalists and delegates who also recorded a story – as well as members of the Cabinet, who read a selection of children’s stories.
Sir George said:
‘I was delighted to be able to take part in this year’s Social Action project at the Conservative Party Conference. Calibre Audio Library is an admirable organisation and an indispensable service for those who are visually impaired. I really enjoyed recording a story at the Social Action Zone and I hope it will be listened to again and again!’
