If you think that your heart is big enough to brighten the day of a blind veteran then keep reading.

Military charity, Blind Veterans UK need people like you to give a few moments of your spare time and make their day less lonely. Many of the charity's members don't have anyone to easily talk to, and feel isolated as a result. You can change this by becoming one of their wonderful volunteers.

You can help in one of many ways – whether it's becoming a home visitor, helping with our social outings or even driving a mini bus, your support will put a smile back on their faces and let them know that someone cares.

Blind Veterans UK is the national charity for blind and vision impaired ex-service men and woman and volunteers are key to their success.

Volunteering your time will ensure a blind veteran will be able to receive the services the charity offers.

These brave ex-Service men and women are often struggling alone with the challenges of sight loss.

By volunteering at a time that's convenient for you, you could help transform a blind veteran's life and give back to someone who's given so much.

Sometimes it can be hard to commit to long-term roles, but the charity is always on the lookout for #volunteers to support them in many ways.

Be a marshal at one of their events, go out in your local community with a collection tin, or take part in a fundraising event - any time you can give will help us support more isolated blind veterans.
