"Living the dream". A story about befriending

25 October 2017

As young boy Cameron aged 11 had an unusual but all consuming passion for buses, read how his befriender nurtured his interest and hear from Cameron, now aged 20 who is “living the dream” driving a service bus for Stagecoach– as the company’s youngest driver in Dumfries and Galloway. Margaret who was his befriender is as “proud as punch”.

Looking back, Cameron says that the support he got from Dumfries and Galloway Befriending Project helped him through what he describes as “an incredibly tough time in my life”. He adds: “If it wasn’t for the encouragement I got from the Befriending Project, and Margaret in particular, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today”.
