Farewell to Frank Smith

Frank has been volunteering for Sutton Vision for over 30 years.  For a number of years he would visit clients on Christmas morning who were alone for the day.  He has been a Trustee, supported our social groups and activities and bought much pleasure, brightness and great friendship to many clients for many years by calling them every Wednesday morning for a chat.  Conversations have been lively, sometimes serious but always greatly appreciated by those he spoke to.  Frank has great understanding of sight loss being VI himself.

Sadly today has been Frank's last day at SV, he is leaving Sutton to live closer to his family.  Everyone here at Sutton Vision would like to thank him for his continued support, kindness and above all, friendship.  We will keep in touch with him and will miss him very much.
