Today’s featured volunteer is Sight Concern Trustee Hazel Shaw who speaks to Anne weekly. To watch the video click on the second image down on the left: 
 
Hazel: “Hi my name is Hazel Shaw I am a trustee at Sight Concern Worcestershire And this is Anne.”
 
Anne: “Hello”.
 
Hazel: “Anne and I met when I became a volunteer at Sight Concern Worcestershire. Initially, I was Anne’s telephone befriender and since then we have spoken every week for about 18 months. We are firm friends now”.
 
Anne: “That’s for sure”.
 
Hazel: “We have a giggle, and we keep each other on the straight and narrow”.
 
Anne: “We try to! Sometimes it’s very difficult!
 
Hazel: “This week has been National Volunteers’ Week and as it draws to a close and I would like to thank everyone that volunteers at Sight Concern Worcestershire. You make a huge difference to the lives of people with sight loss across Worcestershire and from both of us it’s a big thank you.
 
Anne:” Yes thank you very much. I also look forward to meeting with Hazel every week. We have a good old natter, and we laugh a lot, and she always cheers me up because I usually have something to moan about! Thank you.
 
We hope you’ve been inspired by our amazing volunteers. We have a wide assortment volunteer roles available that can be undertaken on a regular or ad hoc basis and full training and support will be given.
