East Cheshire Eye Society calls for new trustee volunteers

East Cheshire Eye Society is looking for new Trustees to support its important work representing people with sight loss in local communities. Macclesfield MP, David Rutley, recently met with current Trustee, Phil Spring, to learn more about how people can help support the Society’s important and positive work.

Mr Spring explained that, given the Society's busy and varied programme of activities, and particularly because of its wide geographical reach, covering the Borough of Cheshire East, the charity relies heavily on its dedicated volunteer staff team. With exciting plans to further develop the Society's role within local communities in the year ahead, it is all the more important for the Society to recruit new Trustees, to support this much-valued work.

As well as providing important practical information for blind and visually impaired people in East Cheshire, the Society organises a range of well-attended and varied social events across local communities. The Society has carried out this important function locally for over 140 years, having been formed in 1875.

Anyone interested in becoming more closely involved in the work of East Cheshire Eye Society can contact 01625 422 602 for further details. The Society also welcomes local corporate sponsorship, with specially-designed packages available to local businesses. The Society’s Vision Day Exhibition on Friday 15th May will once again be a key focus for the year ahead.

Speaking after the meeting, David said, "It has been a privilege to work closely with East Cheshire Eye Society during my time as Macclesfield's MP, and to see first-hand the positive difference it makes in the lives of many local residents. I hope that more local residents will take time to find out more about the Society and see how they can get involved with this inspiring organisation.”
