Mary Sherwood motivation to help others

About our Founder, Mary Sherwood

Mary loves being part of a big family and her family is a very important part of her life. Being a sister, wife, mother and grandmother gives her great pleasure and she feels lucky to also have a large extended family.

A positive person who is fundamentally practical, energetic, proactive and creative, she  adapts very quickly to change and enjoys a challenge. Self-motivated, resourceful and tenacious, she finds helping others very rewarding.

Mary’s hobbies include learning the cello; baking; cake decorating; making soft furnishings; walking, gardening and DIY. Mary is energised by trying out new things.
