Meet the Volunteers
Terry our longest serving volunteer, and has fulfilled a number of important roles. He began by ensuring that the cassette recordings of weekly newspapers and magazines were copied and distributed to blind and partially sighted people across North Wales. Using a multi copy machine Terry would duplicate, pack and send out hundreds of cassettes each week. Terry currently recycles and disposes of all of our confidential information.
In his own words, “I love coming to the society each week, the staff are all very nice and I’m happy to be able to give something back to the charity. Although I am now registered blind and have great difficulty walking I still come in every other week and help in any way I can.”
