Robert attends Minstead Trust’s New Forest day opportunities and community theatre group at Hanger Farm Arts Centre.

He is an outgoing and chatty member of the Trust’s community and also revels in getting out and about in the wider community to meet new people and have new experiences. Here he tells us his lockdown experience and how he feels he can flourish in the future, with your support.

‘I found the [Covid-19] lockdowns really hard – the restrictions were so difficult.

‘It was very depressing.

‘I missed being my friends, having a laugh with them and doing things out and about.

‘Now things are a bit better Minstead Trust have helped me get back to the community theatre at Hanger Farm. I really enjoy it because I get to be with other people – I’m a very friendly person.

‘I am very frustrated when I can’t do what I want to do out and about in the community.

‘It would be good and exciting to raise money to help me go out more and even go on holiday! It would definitely make me happier.’
