Eileen has been involved with FareShare South West since we first started operating in Bristol, back in 2007. We have moved warehouse and come a long way in many other ways since then.
She was one of the first volunteers, initially acting as “girl Friday” to the manager, when there were only the two of us – one volunteer and one member of staff, Suzie. Then she became the Volunteer Co-ordinator, recruiting and inducting around 200 volunteers over the next two or three years.
She then joined the Board as volunteer adviser, and eventually trustee. Over the years, she has continued volunteering in the office and generally keeping up with the growth and development of this brilliant charity, which helps fight hunger, helps reduce food waste, and helps people by volunteering with us.
The future looks rosy, and the more food, community food members and of course volunteers, the better.
