Terri was introduced to The Green Team through her boyfriend who is a current Volunteer. She began by working with The Team in May for 1 day per week and then, as she became more comfortable and confident in her role, she increased her days to 2.
“My name is Terri-Jade. I’m happy that I came to The Green Team. I was quiet when I came but I have changed. I can talk to new people now and it is making me so happy. I had no confidence on the machines but working with everyone has helped me. I can use the lawnmowers and strimmer now.
It helps me to get out of the house, meet new people and go to new places. It is helping me to get the skills that I need to help older people in the community and the work has also helped me to lose weight.”
