The support our volunteers provide plays such a vital role within the operations of our charity. Being a small charity that covers such vast ground within the sight-loss community of Wales, our volunteers enable us to offer sustainable and consistent support to our service users.

To show our thanks to our wonderful volunteers, we would like to introduce you to some of the team …


Molly is a student at Crosskeys College and one of Sight Cymru newest volunteers. In the short time that Molly has been with us, she has already proven herself to be a valuable member of the team, she is an absolute star. As well as having many attributes and skills that our charity has already greatly benefited from, she is truly lovely person, which makes her such a terrific volunteer.

We asked Molly to share with us why she chose to volunteer at Sight Cymru :

“Healthcare professionals take part in some of the most admirable work possible and even though they go to great lengths to care for us, some may be limited by not actually knowing how it feels to be diagnosed with something as life-changing as visual impairment. Wanting to pursue a career in eye care, I believe that alongside gaining great experience, skills and meeting new people, volunteering with Sight Cymru will help me to help others in the future and allow me to understand how those with visual difficulties adapt to daily life.

By choosing to volunteer with Sight Cymru I have been able to achieve a great sense of fulfilment in such little time. I have had the privilege to learn about the variety of support systems and care the charity provides, that sometimes doctors are unable to give.

Sight Cymru have shown me that they are there to support you every step of the way and are prepared to do whatever it takes to help. I can only hope that as circumstances improve with the current Covid-19 situation, I will be able to carryon learning and help out more by continuing to volunteer for this great organisation.”
