My name is Kerry. I started with the Green Team in September 2016 after looking for voluntary work in office and admin. I was introduced to Cheryl and she suggested I work for the West Park group. At first I was so nervous and scared of making mistakes. I was bullied badly as a child and I think this is the reason why my confidence was zero. The Green Team office staff gave me encouragement and helped me to realise that everybody makes mistakes and that’s how you learn. Joining The Green Team has been one of the best things I have ever done, the other volunteers are amazing and from the start I was made to feel welcome, one thing The Green Team don’t do is judge you. I have also been attending a horticultural course once a week which I would never have thought about before and really enjoy it and being with the other members. If it wasn’t for The Green Team I would be stuck at home dwelling on things. I have met many people and made new friends, so thankyou Green Team for giving me a chance to give something back. To me it’s like one big family I love you all.
