Donna’s Retreat

This is a story about a young woman called Donna who loves animals but finds people confusing. Donna sometimes feels nervous being by herself and wishes that she could be more confident like her friend Swampy. With the help of a furry friend, Swampy helps Donna to realise she already has everything she needs to begin making some of her dreams become reality. She just needs a little nudge from her lucky star…

Donna’s Retreat was co-created as a collaboration between a young woman participating with the project, Adèle GerasKim Geyer and other members of the project team. This story is suitable for a general audience and is especially relevant for children and young people who might lack confidence or experience difficulties socialising with others.
