Claire's Experience
 
I have worked as a volunteer Receptionist at the Gateshead Resource Centre for 3 years.
I really enjoy the work I do, as I get to meet some lovely people, it's a very rewarding role.
As a Diabetic myself, I can empathise with people who have sight conditions.
 
Not only do I feel as thought I am helping others, volunteering for Sight Service has helped me too.
If I didn't have my volunteering to look forward to, I would just be sat at home, as my health limits
me to what I can do.
 
I would recommend volunteering for Sight Service, it has changed my life, it could change yours too!
