A craft charity for blind and partially sighted people based at Herstmonceux Village Hall is on the look out for drivers.

Craft View is a charity run by volunteers who provide free transport for members who would otherwise have no means of attending the class.

The service offers a range of crafts including mosaic work, wood carving, painting, basket work, peg-loom weaving, knitting, crochet and macramé.

The crafts are taught by five professional tutors specially trained to work with visually impaired people.

View Craft is now its tenth year and is as popular as ever.

However, Jenny Todd, one of the volunteers, says the charity is desperate for drivers to cover the Eastbourne and Polegate areas.

Jenny said, “If you have a car and are free on Tuesday mornings during school term times, and would be interested in helping our group by driving one or more of our members to and from the craft class, we would be delighted to invite you to visit us and see what we do.

“We are sure that you will be impressed by the happy and busy atmosphere at the class, and by the amazing work that our members produce.”

Training and mileage allowance will be provided. Call Jean Wilson on 01323 505764.
