Vision Australia Radio are a community radio group with whom we have an arrangement to broadcast the Punters’ Club each Saturday morning between 7:30 and 8:30 am. They are looking to raise funds Our Annual Vision Australia Radio Donation Drive is on now until June 30. It’s the time of the year where we call on the community, our listeners and supporters of diverse backgrounds to lend a hand and support the work we do to make information accessible to the blind and low-vision (BLV) community by donating here.
