Graphic of the Needles, on the Isle of Wight

My name is Sue Bungey and I have been Chair of the Board of Trustee Directors since February 2019 and prior to that was Vice Chair from October 2016. 

I spent the majority of my working life as a teacher in Island schools, five years as a manager of an Island sheltered housing scheme and have worked part time as a GPO telephonist. I have also served as a school governor. 

When I was first invited to become a Trustee, I hesitated to accept as the role was new to me but would, I thought, provide me with the chance to support an Island charity, to broaden my experience and to learn new skills.  Having been a trustee for almost six years, I have valued the chance to help shape, support and contribute my time to the Charity.  I have met many interesting new people and had the opportunity to take on new challenges, through my involvement with Sight for Wight. 

I would like to continue in my role as Trustee/Director, as Sight for Wight provides an essential service for Islanders with visual impairment.  I look forward to supporting these aims, so that we can work together, providing a successful and supportive future for the Charity.
