A special shout out to a special lady who I had the privilege of spending time with recently.
Terresa is a Valued Volunteer in South Canterbury, who has a unique connection to our organisation, Volunteering Mid and South Canterbury. Terresa was part of the initial steering group in 2007/8 who was instrumental along with Volunteering Canterbury in the establishment of VMSC. She was Vice President of the Board for a number of years following this.
Terresa is known for her voluntary involvement with the Timaru Suburban Lions where she is the current president and actively involved in projects including input into the development of the Caroline Bay Bike Skills Park, and Toot For Tucker.
Alongside her day job as an Ambulance Officer for St John Ambulance, she also volunteers teaching others how to administer CPR and to use AEDs. Terresa is also on the Area Committee for St John Ambulance.
Terresa proudly spoke about her volunteer involvement with WanderSearch Canterbury Charitable Trust, who provide a tracking device pendant for people with cognitive decline. Her passion for this work with Wandersearch came from her previous involvement with Search and Rescue.
But WAIT….there’s more
Terresa is also part of a dynamic group, Team Chromatic Aberration, that make films each year for competitions. This years film is being dedicated to the late Aaron Williams who was prominent in setting up this group. We wish your team all the best for this 💕
We thank you Teressa May for your trailblazing voluntary commitment and dedication to our South Canterbury Community, you are truly a Valued Volunteer
