Rae Augustin, one of our long-standing volunteers, explains why he personally enjoys volunteering for MertonVision.

“I volunteer on Fridays, and my tasks include answering incoming telephone calls, typing up the minutes of meetings, filing, stocktaking the magnifiers, and preparing envelopes for the MertonVision Newsletter.  I have found working at MertonVision to be extremely enjoyable and fulfilling.  The team is so friendly and supportive.  I also find it very rewarding to work for a charity providing such a valuable service to the local community.

In June 2019 I was lucky enough to receive an Annual Merton Partnership Volunteer Award.  I attended the celebrations with my granddaughter and it was a memorable evening for us both.”
