"I think Cam Sight does an important job for a group of people who have a hard time and I want to support activities that help vulnerable people.  I also want to support activities that have given me pleasure and a purpose. When I retired, the very first contact I made was with Cam Sight’s Volunteer Manager Joy Hallifax, and she got me started on my volunteering life. It was hard leaving work after 37 years and Cam Sight has been important in helping me to find new roles."
