Wanted: people just like you!

Do you enjoy helping others?

Fancy doing something positive and rewarding to make a difference to someone’s life? Want to learn more about sight loss?

We are looking for volunteers to act as MyGuides for the See and Hear Shropshire Exhibition on Wednesday 15 May 2019 at the Shrewsbury Sports Village.

See and Hear Shropshire

See and Hear Shropshire

MyGuides assist in escorting our visually impaired visitors around the exhibition and telling them what’s on each stand. Volunteers will be fully trained by Guide Dogs in how to correctly and safely guide our visitors and you will receive a Level 1 MyGuide Certificate. No qualifications needed just a good attitude and a willingness to help others.

Volunteers will be invited to complete a half day training in Sighted Guiding on Thursday 18 April 2019 – click here for information – and then to be available to guide on the day of the See and Hear exhibition on Wednesday May 15 2019.

We’re looking for approximately 20 volunteers.

If you are interested or would like some more information, please do call or email Pauline Rose on 01743 257746 or pauline.rose@shropshire.gov.uk
