Hello, I’m Julia and I’m the manager of the Southbourne shop. Previously, I have worked up and down the country in a number of roles: both in bookselling management roles and more recently running my own toy shop in Christchurch for six years! I have also worked for two national charities before coming to Dorset Blind Association.
Southbourne has a very strong sense of community and we’ve been made very welcome here. We are building a great team of staff and volunteers and hopefully the shop will go from strength to strength. It is so rewarding to know that the work we do at the shop will directly benefit, and change the lives of, local people living with sight loss.
