I am writing in anticipation that a number of News’ readers may be willing and able to help one of Hampshire’s oldest charities.
The local Open Sight Clubs for blind and partially-sighted people are in desperate need of additional volunteer helpers and drivers in order to continue running.
The well-loved and well-attended clubs across the Fareham, Gosport, Havant and Waterlooville boroughs have been serving the local communities for many years, providing vital support and understanding for the significant numbers of visually-impaired adults in the local areas.
The clubs are all run by dedicated teams of volunteers.
If readers are able to offer a few hours each month, we would love to hear from them.
All Open Sight volunteers are given ‘sighted guiding training’, ongoing support and become part of a much appreciated and valued team.
Mileage expenses are also reimbursed to drivers.
For full details, please call (023) 8064 1244.
Thank you very much, in anticipation.
