About Lockdown Listens

Link Age Southwark is very fortunate to have support from a great team of volunteers and we have been working with them to produce Lockdown Listens – a series of readings where our volunteers and actor ambassadors read a short story or poem.

Heather reads the short story Free White Towel by Carolyn Eden, which is featured in the collection Liberty Tales. The aim of the readings is to give a morale boost during lockdown. We hope you enjoy these recordings.
