He is better known for giving children the heebie jeebies, but a Kensal Rise actor has now been rewarded for his voluntary work helping partially sighted and blind people.
Terrence Hardiman has acted in TV programmes such as Doctors, The Royal and Cadfael, but is best remembered for his scary turn in The Demon Headmaster which was broadcast in the mid-1990s.
Away from the screen though he has shown his warm side by volunteering 4,500 hours of his time to record 150 audio books.
The actor lends his voice to recordings from his home and his work forms part of the Calibre Audio Library.
The library provides audio books for 18,000 people who can’t read print.
