In advance of volunteers' Week we held a virtual meet and greet last week. Around 30 people joined us at the event, including Sight Loss Council members, event and Link Up volunteers. Here's how it went.
Meet Gloucestershire Sight Loss volunteer Gavin Higgins.
Meet Merseyside Sight Loss volunteer Matt Cliff.
Meet Greater Manchester Sight Loss volunteer Gary Tunney.
Meet Bristol Sight Loss volunteer Anela Wood.
Meet Lianne McKeon member of Birmingham Sight Loss Council.
Meet Gloucestershire Sight Loss Council member Ines Higgins.
Mick Marr has been a Link Up service member for several years. It has enabled him to go to a variety of events he would otherwise struggle to attend on his own. We spoke to him to find out how the Link Up service has made a difference to his life.
To celebrate Volunteers' Week all the staff at TPT wanted to say a personal thanks to all our volunteers.
From hosting CV training, providing shadowing opportunities and being physical guides to speaking at events, running workshops and even a blind kick about, our corporate volunteers have got involved and supported our work in a myriad of ways.
On 3 June TPT hosted a webinar in conversation with Andy Bear from Lockton and Senior Employment Manager, Martin Sigsworth, TPT. If you missed it, catch it again here.
