Michelle said: “I have a fantastic relationship with someone I support called Terry. Spending time with him is a great privilege. He always makes my day. He’s really into Chelsea F.C. and the Military – he has two walls in his bedroom dedicated to them. Unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic, Terry became a bit down and recluse. He’d always have his Chelsea F.C. scarf on the wall, but one day I found it in a drawer, and I could tell something needed to be done, so I decided to write to Chelsea F.C. A couple days later, I was surprised to get a response. They sent a letter with a signed photograph of midfielder Christian Pulisic!”
When asked about her role Michelle went on to say:
“I’ve had such great experiences with the people I support. I love making a difference in their lives. It makes me so happy when you get to see their excitement and big smiles when you come in for the day. And at the end of the day, I feel really uplifted and accomplished. I walk out the door with a skip in my step."
