These guys have been incredible in meeting so consistently and built up a real bond during their mentoring relationship! Jo felt compelled to write Marty a letter about how much mentoring meant to him and what he has got from it.
Have a wee read……beware, you might shed a tear or two!
~ Charley, Wellbeing Worker
Thank you so much for everything and I don’t mean taking me out on Sunday to goto Belfast and have a good time NO! What I mean is that you’ve so much understanding and compassion, you’ve a good sense of humour and you’ve helped me become more independent and confident in myself. You help me out when I’m in need. You’re a very mannerly and respecting person and throughout my entire year with you, I’ve come to know you as a true best friend and what my mum says that you’re like a big brother to me and that may not be far from the truth.
At first, when we both met up (well technically it was at the MACS fun day), I felt very nervous and shy about meeting you but after a proper sit-down I knew that we were going to get along with each other very well. However, I don’t think this letter is enough to express my honest gratitude and happiness being with you as my mentor and it’ll be very sad to see you go but I know you’ve had a great time too and I hope, I just really hope this isn’t the last we see each other but I know it probably won’t…
From your best compadre,
