Society operations manager Susan Swinburn says all new helpers and volunteers will be given visual impairment awareness training and support.

She also has an ambition to set up craft groups, book groups and other social activities for the area's blind and partially sighted people.

She said: "I can't stress how much we also need volunteers who can spare an hour or so to visit those living with sight loss.

"We know of 20 or more people who are socially isolated because they are unable to leave their homes. It would be so wonderful if we could get enough volunteers to just spend an hour or so to ease their loneliness a little and help restore their connection with the community."

Prospective volunteers can call Susan on 01476 592775 or email susans@blind-society.org.uk
