Generous residents are wanted to give blind people a new lease of life.
Huddersfield Society for the Blind is looking for new people to become volunteers at social events to ensure that no one in need is left out.
It wants more people to help transport and accompany some of the hundreds of members on twice monthly trips, which can include journeys to the seaside, pub lunches and parties.
Anyone who can drive and has a few hours spare from 1pm to around 5.30pm on the first and second Tuesday of every each month is welcome to apply and help make a difference to those in need.
Board member, Susan Beaumont, said: “We’re looking for friendly, caring people who can help make a real difference to the lives of those with sight loss.
“Most of our members are elderly and face isolation not only if they have mobility issues but the fact that they have sight problems too.
“Our social events are a life line to them-it allows them to keep up friendships and ensures that they get out into the community regularly.
“If they didn’t go out with us some may not at all.”
The society, which is based in the Britannic House in Upperhead Row, is also on the look out for more members to sit on its executive board, including a new president and a secretary.
Susan, said: “ We’d like people to help us fill these slots to benefit the society.
“The president is an important figurehead to us who represents the organisation.
“And we’re looking for a well-organised person to become our secretary, who will organise the trips and activities.
“They also need to be able to come along to meetings which we hold.”
