Positively Ageing - Terry Knight

Terry joined Alzheimers Marlborough’s team of volunteers in 2015 as a van driver and since then has become a jack of all trades. Each Thursday he takes a group of men who attend the Wither Road Club to the Renwick Menz Shed, utilising his practical skills in engineering and woodworking.

Terry has also been a volunteer driver on the St John health shuttle for the last four years. As a keen small bore target shooter, he helps coach the Marlborough Girls’ College rifle team. He also belongs to CAMS - Classic Action Motorcycle Sport - and retired from road racing when he turned 65.

When he isn’t volunteering, Terry is a keen fisherman. He and his wife have fished the Top of the South for nearly 40 years and during this time Terry built many boats at home in his workshop.

At 71 years Terry firmly believes that age is an attitude of mind.
