Feedback for Yoga sessions
“I remember my late father doing yoga every morning so this was a good motivation for me to join in with The Mentor Ring and feel connected with a new group and get to know others.
At first, I felt it was too early. Once I started, Daily yoga has given me discipline and a routine to my day. I have seen that my skin complexion prior to yoga and during lockdown was looking off colour and others reinforced this that they had noticed me looking more glowing compared to when I first started. I have also become more flexible and helped with better sleep.
Sometimes my grandchildren will also join in and enjoy the sessions with me and also get to talk to TMR team members
Thanks for this wonderful opportunity”

Feedback for Creative session
“I love Art & Craft sessions organised by TMR and especially Knitting and Crochet are very much addictive. Whenever I find free time, I used to start crocheting. It’s a stress buster for me and good relaxation. It has improved my concentration, creativity and attention to details. Many thanks for the session & encouragement. Happy to share some of my works.”
“I am looking after my son who has Cerebral palsy. Sometimes we feel frustrated and become depressed, losing interest in everyday life. TMR has supported us emotionally and kept in touch, providing huge solace to me and my family. TMR have helped and guided us with unfamiliar paperwork. They have been there for us during our difficult times and their support is really valuable. Lovely volunteers, thanks for looking after our well-being. We’ve also been given a chance for much needed respite. My elder son started volunteering with TMR, and the encouragement of the organization makes him continue to do more. The whole family is very happy! Mentoring support from TMR made us learn how to cope with going forward…”
We have a wonderful coffee morning which has continued all through the lockdown as well. Although it’s been in online, it hasn’t stopped us. We all kept connected one way or other even got that we’re talking every day I am joining courses and I am cheering everybody and we have got a long way to go for the New Year I see lots of plans. It made a big difference for me. I came out that had a reason to come out and it’s local and in addition, I used to stop in the cafe I discovered everything in community centre courses and I was meeting some other elderly people as well and it was a really wonderful day but we’ve moved on from there we’ve expanded into another area of Cardiff and but we’re coming back here and looking forward to 2021.
The benefits for me being absolutely amazing to get my mind going and a reason to get out through the front door and a reason to get up. I have contributed quite a lot and I have been praised because I do mentoring as well and I hope we grow quite big. We should not be negative we should be positive and encourage other people before getting problems let’s discuss them have a cup of coffee, come along, please connect and I’ll see you there or online bye.
