Do you enjoy 1:1 company and conversation and have a couple of hours available to visit someone once a fortnight? If so please consider joining our charity Somerset Sight which supports people with sight loss across the County. Our volunteer befrienders are carefully matched up with a local person who has sight loss to visit them on a regular basis for company and often to help with reading, sometimes to take them out. Losing one’s sight makes everything in life more difficult, the regular company of a volunteer makes a huge difference to the quality of people’s lives. Volunteers also benefit from the visits. One of our volunteers said recently “My husband can always tell when I have been visiting my lady as I come home in such a good mood!” If you have a little time available and would like to help please contact our office in Taunton for further details.
