Introducing this week’s DRC Sunday Superhero- Richard

Into the spotlight this week steps Richard Holmes, alias Ricky Rooster – our hirsute hero whose hair, and enthusiasm, are untamable!

Richard began his journey with DRC all the way back in 2006, and in the ensuing years he has partnered closely with a couple of outstanding side-kicks – Kelli and Roy.

Together, the Roosterman and his offsiders have worked hard to increase his fitness, balance, and physical resilience, and to extend Richard’s obvious interests in music, art, and craft.

Richard has been a long-time attendee of vocal training, and his strong contribution to kapa haka, and to our vocal group, attest to his efforts and passion here.

In addition to singing up a storm, Richard is a dab hand at baking and cooking, a dynamic ten-pin bowler, and an indispensable member of our Discover Hawke’s Bay crew.

You can find Richard in his element on a Friday afternoon, belting out Rodgers and Hammerstein classics with absolute joy and abandon during our Movie Club sessions!

Richard Holmes, ladies and gentlemen, a true DRC star!

Introducing Peter, this week’s DRC Sunday Superhero.

We welcome Peter onto the stage this evening to share his story. Peter joined DRC in 2015 when he was concentrating on acquiring work skills while working in a couple of part time jobs. Recognising a few familiar faces when he joined DRC helped Peter get over those first day nerves, and he very quickly settled in, found his voice and started to explore the different activities on offer.
With the encouragement of the DRC support staff Peter has tried his hand at cooking, photography, ten pin bowling, golf, creative speech and took part in last year’s drama production performed at Iona college in conjunction with Idea Services.
Peter loved his time on the stage so much that he really wants to do it all again, but this time taking a leading role. Watch this space!
Ten pin bowling is another of Peter’s favourite pass times and he relishes the weekly opportunity to improve his score. A collection of Peter’s photography was purchased by the centre and now brightens the walls in our dining room.
Peter lives locally in a supported living flat and now independently catches the bus to and from his activities. This lifestyle gives Peter the freedom and autonomy to live his best life.
