Avril's Story
Wednesday, November 29, 2017

I have worked all my life, was close to retirement but not yet ready for the quiet life. I heard about Somerset Sight on the radio and thought that sounds like an interesting organisation.  I’d like to give that a go.

At my interview I told them about my experience in administration, sales and customer service.  I was welcomed with open arms.

I received great training and love being a volunteer on reception and in the resource centre demonstrating specialist equipment to sight impaired customers.  I enjoy the companionship, the buzz of being back in the workplace, I’ve made some lovely new friends and got a lot of satisfaction out of helping people and giving something back to my community.
