I have been volunteering for Sightline for several months and it makes my day speaking to such amazing people on a regular basis.
Speaking to lots of lovely people, I consider myself very fortunate and we chat about all sorts from how our day is going to our interests and have a good laugh during our calls.
“I have had several eye conditions from birth, and my eyesight is now deteriorating further due to Glaucoma. I know that sight loss can be very lonely and having a call from a volunteer can have such a positive impact to both service users and their befriender volunteers.”
I am also a very keen knitter, and I am raising money for Sightline by knitting children’s items for family, friends and colleagues.
If anyone has anytime to spare to speak to some lovely Sightline service users, I’d highly recommend it. Giving just an hour a week can give so much to someone in the sight loss community.
We currently have a number of volunteering opportunities available. Please get in touch if you can spare as little as 1 hour a week. Your call can really make a difference to someone living in the sight loss community.
