Tayen used to love bedtime stories, but she lost her sight after having chemotherapy to treat a rare condition called neurofibromatosis.

Thanks to our borrower Living Paintings, a charity that crafts ‘touch to see’ books, Tayen can enjoy stories again...

Living Paintings: bringing the visual world to life for blind people

Living Paintings is a charity that provides a free postal library service of specially adapted tactile books for blind and partially sighted children and adults. An incredible invention, the books make up for the missing sense of sight by combining touch and hearing.

Living Paintings publish titles suitable for anyone from pre-school to adult. Its wide and growing range is designed to provide education and life-long learning, enhance lifestyle and support leisure interests.

Charity Bank: a bank for good

We’re an ethical savings and loans bank. We use our savers’ money to make loans only to charities and social enterprises. Living Paintings is one of hundreds of charitable organisations to benefit from Charity Bank loans.

We're entirely owned by charitable foundations, trusts and social purpose organisations. Our non-executive directors are unpaid and we do not operate a staff bonus scheme, so when we say we’re an ethical bank, we mean it.
