Volunteer Profiles

We would like to express our continued appreciation and thanks to everyone who gives their valuable time and dedication to supporting visually impaired people across the county. Our volunteers really do make such a difference to many peoples’ lives, in various supporting roles such as a driver, club leader, home visitor, receptionist and administrator.

Michelle has actively volunteered for NCBA since 2002. During her time with us, Michelle has assisted with administration tasks, assisting with newsletter mailings and taking part in fundraising events. Michelle recently took part in our annual See-side Walk at Newbiggin with Sue her support worker. We have awarded Michelle with our longstanding volunteer certificate and thank her for all her hard work and dedication over the years.

Lucy first started volunteering with us in September 2015 as a volunteer driver and home visitor. Since then, Lucy has been involved with various activities; assisting with the sensory group in Bedlington, volunteer driving, weekly home visiting, assisting with events and volunteer get-togethers. Lucy has been a real help with the recent set-up of the sensory garden group at Bedlington Community allotment, in partnership with Groundwork. Without her input and support, we would not be able to run the group as her energy and input is greatly valued.

Michael started volunteering as a volunteer driver, in October 2015. He assists with various transport trips for clients to hospital appointments, clubs and group visits and shopping trips. Michael is friendly, reliable and has a can do attitude, all are very valuable characteristics to have as a volunteer and we would like to thank him for his valuable contribution that he makes to the charity.
