Over 50s needed for a study on reading and well-being


We are looking for volunteers aged 50+ to help with our exciting research on reading and well-being.

Volunteers will get the chance to listen to a free audiobook (from a choice of 4) and will be provided with a £10 Love2Shop voucher as a thank you. 

We are especially interested in recruiting volunteers from Darnall, Firth Park, and Manor.

Please get in touch with Giulia (pronounced 'Julia') on email or on 0114 222 6544 if you would like to take part or for more details. 

The project is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield Psychology department and Ignite Imaginations and is funded by the Arts Council. 

Please consider helping with our research and/or passing our advert to any individuals/groups that might be interested.

Thank you!
