Mary is a beautiful lovely girl who loves dancing. She is charming, funny, very loveable, caring and has a great sense of humour and unbelievably has just turned 18.
Mary has Global Development Delay and has been coming to Cherry Trees for many months now.
Mary’s mother Rosalie said “Cherry Trees gives us a break and allows my husband and me to go out or stay at home and just have time for each other. The great thing about Cherry Trees is that Mary can spend time with people of her own age which is really beneficial for her as she is an only child and without Cherry Trees would not have this opportunity. The staff and volunteers are so kind and for Mary’s 18th birthday they took her and some friends to Ben and Jerry’s in the town for dinner to celebrate. They all went in the Cherry Trees minibus and had a wonderful time and the best thing of all was that Mary felt just like any other 18 year old celebrating her special birthday with friends.
Mary is at Pond Meadow School and goes to Cherry Trees after school. She loves going and we know that it provides a safe, happy and caring environment for our only daughter.
Thank you Cherry Trees – we appreciate all that you do!
