Keen walkers are invited to contact the society if they are available regularly to support our visually impaired walking group as a sighted guide. The group gets together on the second Tuesday of every month for a short, pre-planned walk. They meet at a coffee venue before heading off for a different walk each month. There is the choice of joining the group for lunch at a pre-planned venue after the walk.  For further information about joining as a volunteer please call 522205 or email volunteers@iwsb.org.uk
