Volunteers Wanted

Nottinghamshire Royal Society for the Blind (NRSB) have changed their name to My Sight Nottinghamshire and are still looking for enthusiastic volunteers in your area to help distribute flyers to help raise awareness for their fundraising events such as Sponsored Walks, Abseils and Cycles.

This will not be door-to-door flyering, but more placing larger quantities of promotional flyers in your local shops, pubs, cafes leisure centres etc.

We will be looking for the volunteers to help out for just a few hours every couple of months, however we do have many other volunteering positions at My Sight for those who would like more commitment.

No experience necessary, just call Vicki or Kerry (Events & Community Fundraisers) on 0115 9706806 for more information on how you can help.
