Welcome to Croydon Vision…
supporting people with sight loss.
The Croydon Talking Newspaper is a weekly audio version of the Croydon Advertiser edited and read by Roger Bing. It is also accompanied by a local audio magazine read by a rota of presenters. The link will take you to a player that will allow you to listen to both parts.
Hello everyone, my name is Nataliya Lavitskaya and I am the new Finance and Database Officer.
Originally, I am from Belarus. I came to the UK in 2001. Initially, I worked as a store manager, then decided to obtain a UK Accounting qualification based on my University degree from Belarus. From 2011 I worked in the private sector, then later joined Merton Community Transport as Accountant Administrator.
Finance was always my passion. On top of this, I had such a great experience with my first community job, which helped me to understand what I wanted to do in the future.
Since joining Croydon Vision, I have worked both in finance and Reception, giving me an opportunity to meet members, volunteers and trustees. It enabled me to understand that Croydon Vision is not just an organisation that helps and support people, but is more like a big family where everyone is caring and supportive of each other.
Last month we had our first big event: An Open Day. We had such a lovely time with members, guests and volunteers. It was a great opportunity for everyone to get to know more about the services and each other.
Thank you to everyone for your help and support during my first few months at Croydon Vision, I am happy to be part of your Team. (more…)
