Meet Debra Colling
From the 9-15th of May was National Volunteer Week, putting the spotlight on the incredible people that volunteer their time every day in Australia. Our Volunteer Spotlight for this newsletter is Deb Colling - a valuable part of the CTRC community. We are very grateful for all the volunteers who help out at the CTRC - we wouldn't be able to do what we do without your support!
Heres Debra's experience about volunteering with us:
"My name is Debra Colling from East Fremantle.
Most mornings after school drop off I take a leisurely drive to a piece of country living in the city – CTRC. Here you will find the most genuine, giving people, plus a beautiful herd of loved, hardworking and very giving horses that not only give lessons to various abilities of riders during the week but on some weekends such as last weekend at Perth Horse & PC were out competing in Showjumping competitions!
I am one of the many volunteers who help to run the Centre which gives so much enjoyment to all different types of members of our community and also gives me a fabulous feeling of satisfaction of being part of this team.
My main role each morning is to deliver hay to the beautiful horses and help Chief Instructor M’Liss with her “double dink” lessons which are essential for people who love to ride but for various reasons are unable to do so by themselves. Well done to Banana and M’Liss – you are both stars!"
