A MAN who turned his talents to helping a charity, has been thanked for his hard work.
Bob Rollett, 72, of Stockerston Crescent, Uppingham, has recorded more than 100 audio books for Calibre, a charity that provides books for people who have sight problems or other disabilities that mean they cannot read.
To mark his efforts, the charity presented Bob with a trophy at a special award ceremony.
He said: “I started recording for Calibre in 2006. I’m retired and it keeps my brain active.
“I read books that I would not have read otherwise, including children’s books and autobiographies.
“It was lovely to receive the award because I love books, I love reading and I love recording.”
Bob first discovered his talent in 2004 when he came runner-up in The Times’ competition to find the “Voice of the Year”.
