Help people in the Cirencester area to get out and about!
Guide Dogs is appealing for volunteers in the Cirencester area, who could spare a few hours to help local people with sight loss get out and about.
Although the charity is best known for the guide dog service, it also runs a service called ‘My Guide’ where it matches volunteer sighted guides with visually impaired people.
A volunteer may help someone do activities such as visiting shops, going to a café or simply going for a walk.
Val is visually impaired and was recently partnered with her My Guide volunteer, Lindy.
Val said: “I applied for support from a My Guide volunteer to help me get out and about”
“Lindy is excellent company, we have a good laugh together and have lots to talk about.”
Beth Wise, My Guide Volunteering Manager for the Cirencester area said: “Being a My Guide volunteer is fun, flexible and rewarding and we partner people based on common interests.
“If you could spare just a few hours a week or a fortnight to help a local person with sight loss get out and about, then please get in touch!”
