The latest in our series introducing you to the people behind the scenes at FareShare Sussex. Over to Rik.
Hi, my name is Richard and I have been part of the warehouse team at FareShare Sussex since March 2020. I was a volunteer for 18 months before I applied for the paid role. Since I have had the job we have experienced more food coming in and more projects coming on board requiring our services.
I really love my job because of all the good work we do in this current climate. We have been really lucky to have an amazing team of volunteers who give up their time to come in and help us get the food out.
I love using the training I have picked up and passing it on to our volunteers.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my two girls doing fun activities. I am also a big football fan and follow Leeds United. I am a keen cyclist and enjoy working out at the gym. ,
I have enjoyed introducing myself to you and I can’t wait to help FareShare Sussex grow in the future.
