Barbara Grow

Barb has only been with us a short while but in a short space of time has become a valued member of our team. Always quietly working along in the background and lovely to have a cup of tea with!

“ I am 63 years old and grew up in Claremont, then moved north to Padbury to raise my 2 children.

I have since moved to Kinsley and enjoy crocheting and knitting. Dianne my sister suggested I volunteer at CTRC as I had spare time and suffer major depression. I took this advice and started at CTRC meeting Jacqui in the car park sitting in her car and calling out “Hello Sir, is this the horse riding place?”

Since volunteering I have lost 6kg’s due to being more active just 2 days a week for 4 hours! I do not have a background in horses but enjoy being around them and the helpful , friendly people who are all very inclusive. I do not do a lot with the horses but help in the office and grounds, cleaning duties, all making my depression more manageable!!”

We are so thankful that Barb’s sister recommended us, because Barb has taken to our centre so quickly that we can’t imagine her not flitting around.
