Volunteers Week

As a thank you to our wonderful volunteers we enjoyed an afternoon tea together on Wednesday 6th June.  Whilst some couldn't attend 25 volunteers, including 5 newly recruited folk, were warmly welcomed.  It gave us all the opportunity to spend time together socially, some people meeting for the first time. Sutton Vision wouldn't be able to offer the services we do withouth the support and friendship of so many people.  We must also remember that our Board of Trustees are also volunteers and thanks must go to them too.

Special thanks were given to Frank who has retired after over 40 years of service, we miss him very much but wish him well as he starts afresh in Worthing.  Eric Kennedy, Chairman of Trustees presented Frank with a thank you gift.
