When Coco first came to Hill End she was worried about making friends. Her mother and sister warned her volunteer that Coco was shy and sure enough she spent the early days of her first camp singing songs to herself separate from the camp. However, by the last day Coco had come out of her shell and felt close enough to everyone to organise a concert. Everyone gathered on the grass on the last night, tired from the disco, as Coco serenaded us with the Snowman’s ‘We’re Walking in the Air’.
We were so happy to hear from Coco’s Mum who said:
‘Coco had a unique opportunity to challenge herself in a safe environment amongst a team of incredibly caring and supportive volunteers. It was a really positive life changing experience for Coco and our family’.
