Introducing the RSB Ambassador Team!
Erin Bell - Adelaide Thunderbirds
"I became an RSB Ambassador due to my own personal experience with vision impairment. I have worn glasses/contact lenses since I was 10 years old and would not have been able to pursue my sporting dreams without vision correction."
Kym Dillon - Channel 9
"I feel very honoured to represent the Royal Society for the Blind and with my fellow ambassadors, hope to spread the important work of the RSB. Whether it is through the RSB Guide Dogs, orientation and mobility training or employment services, the RSB plays such an important role in the lives of many and this vital organisation is one we should all be aware of."
Adam Gibson - Adelaide 36ers, Team Captain
"I am very excited to be an RSB Ambassador this year, as it will give me the opportunity to support and raise awareness for people who are blind or vision impaired through the many programs and events that the RSB organise."
Rachael Leahcar - RSB Client and 2012 The Voice Australia Finalist
"I was born with Retinitis Pigmentosa and one day, I will be totally blind. This would be scary if not for the Royal Society for the Blind. As an ambassador for them, I hope I can do everything in my power to help others like myself live their lives to the fullest, like the RSB has helped me to do."

Jane Reilly - FIVEaa
"Assistance from the RSB makes a huge difference to the lives of so many. Imagine how lonely and sad it must be to be born blind or vision impaired or to acquire vision loss.
The RSB is there to support clients and their families during difficult times and to give them a brighter future. I encourage you to support the RSB and their fantastic work."
Bernie Vince - Adelaide Crows
"I think it would be pretty disappointing if you had something wrong with your eyesight. You can't do much without a guide dog, so I think the RSB is a good charity to get involved in and volunteer your time with."
