I take three buses to be able to join the group I love it so much. The community spirit, the ability to get together with friends and be in nature makes it more than worth the trip.
Having a brain tumour has left me very isolated, so joining TCV has greatly helped my mental health as I’ve made new friends. Getting outdoors has made me appreciate the wonder of nature and I feel very comfortable and happy when I’m there.
Thanks to the team of excellent TCV Project Officers, I’ve also learnt so much more about the local urban environment, and the need to enhance the diversity in the green spaces around the London Borough of Camden both in public and community places.
I’ve been with TCV for over 2 years and in that time, I have been given the opportunity to learn skills, I have been given the opportunity to teach others the skills that I now have, and the confidence to know that I am somebody.
