Anthony's favourite days of the week is Wednesday and there's a good reason for that. It's the day he meets his friends at the Tōtara Club in Picton.
Former Marlborough Enliven Team Leader Sharaine Steenberg said Anthony is the life and soul of the party, bringing so much joy to our group. “He’s been with Presbyterian Support/Tōtara for over a year and he’s made good friends.”
Anthony was diagnosed with an intellectual disability when he was younger. His mother has always cared for him, and Anthony loves to tell stories about her, how much he loves her and how well she cared for him. Sadly, however, both parents have now passed away. Anthony now lives on his own but because of his diagnosis, he sometimes struggles to make friends. This all changed when Anthony joined the Tōtara Club.
