"To add to the mix, it will be my 50th birthday next year, so I will have been around for a third of RNIB’s existence! My major move from Newcastle in the northeast to London was made a reality through working for RNIB. I worked as an administrator in their major donor department, being the first point of contact for many of their important funders. It gave me the chance to give back a little. Without that job, I wouldn’t have gained so many opportunities to travel the world, or to perform with the lead blind theatre company and meet the love of my life. So RNIB made those magic moments happen by offering me employment, and I am so grateful."
