My first experience with TCV was as a student on a short gardening course. My mental health was awful and all I wanted was something to get me out of the house. I got an amazing welcome from TCV Hollybush, it came to feel like a home from home. Whenever I was at Hollybush, it felt like all my stress melted away.
In January 2018, I decided to take the plunge & become a Volunteer Officer. The support was great, the training really useful, but most of all the team were amazing. The skills I gained also gave me the courage to start an Environmental Science degree.
I genuinely cannot stress how much TCV did for me, how proud I am to be associated with them and how grateful I will always be.
