Robert, who had worked at Flaxmere New World for 13 years, started volunteering at the Knowledge Bank 3 mornings a week.
He is regarded as an integral part of the team and through his love of Golf and special Olympic medal winning, is able to converse with some of the other male volunteers.
Robert went to Special Olympics where he won Bronze medal for his Golfing skills.
Robert has now gained a paid position as Outdoor Maintenance Assistance at Clubs Hastings, where he has many responsibilities.
As he was a patron of the Club, he was already known, so making the transition from customer to employee was seamless.
With the support of the staff and management, Robert is once again proving his worth.
