Volunteering Information Fair


The Volunteering Information Fair was on at the The Roysse Room in the Guildhall...

Ryder-Cheshire Volunteers are looking for people able to give a little bit of time to share their enthusiasm or interest - photography, cooking, astonomy, art or whatever - with somebody else. They build up a list of able and disabled people and match them up

Vinvolved are there to promote volunteering for 16-25 year olds. I know my son is doing a bit of volunteer work because sometimes it is the way to get experience before you can get into a job.

Among others there were Guide Dogs for the Blind.

I tried out some special glasses - intended to help the rest of us understand better what it is like to have various optical conditions. This one is to simulate macular degenaration .
