I have set up a car wash, as i really enjoy cleaning cars. I am currently setting up patio washing. I have helped to set up a camera club. I am also on the management committee. I have help to do a video presentation to show others what i been doing. It means a lot to me because it has given me the opportunity and the confidence to set up my own car wash. And to be a part of a group of people who like the same things as me. Before T2M i didn’t have anything to do, this has given me the opportunity to do things i want to do and what interests me. It fills up my time and i am not bored anymore. I have also met new friends.
