University & Sixth Form Students
Talkback Comms works with schools across North Somerset.
We also like to offer a little extra to our local students: Sixth Form Students and University Students can redeem £5.00 off any iPhone, iPad or Samsung repair.
We understand that being a young student can be financially challenging. If you are not yet working full-time but are paying for your own repair, we will help you out.
To redeem this discount, we require valid, in-date Sixth Form Student ID or Student University ID. You must present adequate proof that you are currently in full time education, and that the device that we are repairing is yours. We will not accept having the UNiDAYS app or Student Beans app as proof of student status.
This discount does not apply to software services, and cannot be used in conjunction with other offers and discounts.
The students at Gordano are of course some of our most regular customers in need of accidental damage repair, and we appreciate their loyalty in shopping locally. We are also grateful for University students across the country that choose to use our services when visiting home.

Paco Castagna Racing
Speedway has always been an integral part of the business. It started with premier league team, the Newport Wasps (aka the Talkback Wasps) back in the 90’s, and then later with the Reading Racers.
Having established connections and built sponsorship deals with these teams, we were fortunate enough to begin working with riders such as Grand Prix legend Leigh Adams, Reading Captain & current Grand Prix Race Director Phil Morris and 12x Italian Champion Amando Castagna (Paco’s Dad).
Looking to follow in his father’s footsteps, Paco is a young, up and coming speedway talent, born in Arzignano, Italy, in 1994. He currently races for Birmingham in the English Championship, and is having a great season in which he's been one of the teams top scorers in their pursuit to win the league. Paco is 4 times under 21 Italian champion, 2 times Italian champion, Argentinian champion, and has represented Italy in the prestigious Speedway of Nations.
Great Ormond Street Hospital
We collect money for and donate to Great Ormand Street Hospital, an infamous paediatric treatment and research centre in central London. Since its formation in 1852, the hospital has been dedicated to children’s healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses. Children that are diagnosed with a serious or terminal illness are often referred to Great Ormand Street Hospital for care.
Instead of charging our local customers for assistance and advice, we ask that they instead make a donation to the Great Ormand Street Hospital, and have a collection pot which we try to fill as often as possible! It is our aim to raise £1000 for the charity in-store, in hope that we can do our bit for those that need it most.
You can find out more about the hospital and information on how to donate here.
The Marmalade Trust
A charity dedicated to recognising loneliness and helping people make new friendships.
Marmalade do vital and inspiring work in local communities, including ours. By hosting events to support those that are isolated, and by raising awareness on the issue of loneliness, the organisation has been able to find, support and reconnect people across the country.
The Marmalade Manifesto:
"We have a positive and proactive approach to loneliness and we want to normalise the conversation around it. There is nothing wrong with feeling lonely: it’s just a lack of social connections. We aim to lose the stigma around loneliness and rather than seeing it as a negative, shameful or hopeless thing, we want to educate people to see loneliness as a blank canvas on which they can fill their lives with new friends and experiences. We all feel lonely at some point but the good news is that it is entirely fixable. We are committed to changing the language of loneliness to make it a conversation about connections instead."
