About Garry Duthie - Camphill School Aberdeen
Nicknamed the “Alpaca Whisperer,” Garry, a retired university lecturer, has volunteered at Camphill School Aberdeen for over 5 years, often 7 days a week – rain or shine. Garry has transformed and developed alpaca therapy sessions directly improving the lives of over 50 young people with complex additional support needs, reducing stress and anxiety. Daily walks are often the highlight of many young people’s week and a highly coveted activity, resulting in double shifts for our wooly friends and volunteer, Garry.
Garry’s commitment, especially to the alpacas and the therapy sessions brings meaning, purpose and enjoyment to everyone within the organisation.
