Mick has provided First Aid and Men Who Foster Training for our organisation.
The carers described him as knowledgable, welcoming and helped to put them at ease.
The men said they had a fun evening whilst thinking about how to keep themselves safe. Nothing to do with the Chinese apparently !!
Thank you Mick
