Sponsor a Audio Book
Reading is something many of us take for granted. It’s a way to relax, escape, imagine and so much more. For individuals who have a sight loss and for many others who, for whatever reason cannot read print, audio books can provide access to and enjoyment of books.
One very special way you can support GWRANDO is to sponsor an audiobook. You can sponsor the recording of a whole book or contribute any amount towards a book so that we can continue to provide Welsh language audio books for adults, children and young people.

To sponsor a book for childen and young people:

£1,000 - £2,500 depending on the size of the book.
Or any amount of your choosing towards the production of a book.
Narrating the audio book Powell
"As an actor, I have always wanted the experience of voicing a novel. With all the different characters that tend to be in them, and the fact that the storyteller's voice needs to be interesting throughout the piece it is a tremendous challenge; is a marathon for an actor
So, I was delighted when I had the opportunity to voice the book 'Powell' for GWRANDO. Not only because the novel itself by Manon Steffan Ros is a special one, with a very important message behind it. But I'm also very proud to support and be part of the special work GWRANDO does for young people with visual impairment. In that regard, it is a privilege to be able to help more people to have better access to Welsh stories like this.
The recording experience was just as challenging as I’d imagined, but still a lot of fun considering how many interesting characters I got to voice. I am extremely grateful for the experience, and I hope I have the opportunity to work on similar projects again in the future".
