Volunteer Profile – Peter Druce

Age:

43

How many camps have you attended?

Three.

Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?

Thinking about my childhood and the loss of my father and being in a family with only women, I wish I had some male people to share my feelings with. I didn’t want that for anyone else and wanted to help.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring. Always optimistic.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about grief?

Tomorrow is another day and it’s ok to be sad.

What inspires you about our campers?

Each of their stories is different and the challenges they go through. If I ever thought I had it tough before, boy these kids are unreal!

A final note from Peter:

The format and one on one involvement between mentor and Camper ensures that every child has the tools to enable them to deal with grief.
