Thomas Pocklington Trust Launches Rodney Powell volunteering award

Thomas Pocklington Trust, who fund and support Sight Loss Councils, has launched the Rodney Powell award for Volunteering, to recognise the contribution volunteers make to the charity and the lives of blind and partially sighted people.

Rodney Powell was Thomas Pocklington’s great nephew. He was a trustee at TPT for 37 years from 1983 to 2020, when he sadly passed away.

Nominations are open to the public. This is your chance to nominate a Sight Loss Council volunteer who you feel should be recognised for their work. Three awards will be presented to our volunteers and volunteering teams. . To find out more and how you can nominate, head over to the TPT website.

If you are blind or partially sighted and want to make a difference, apply online to join the Sight Loss Councils
