Volunteer story – Bev

4th June 2024

This week marks Volunteers Week a chance to showcase and thank our wonderful volunteers who dedicate their time and energy and who collectively keep the operation of Slough Foodbank going at what is our busiest ever time. In fact, if all rotas are filled, it takes around 82 volunteers a week to keep us running.

 

During volunteers week we’re celebrating our volunteers, highlighting the different volunteer roles available at Slough Foodbank and sharing volunteer stories. Today we’re hearing from Bev – a warehouse volunteer.

 

How long have you been volunteering at Slough Foodbank?
I joined the Foodbank in October 2021.

 

What’s your favourite thing about volunteering at Slough Foodbank?
The wonderful team of people I work with.

 

What’s a fun/interesting fact about you that we might not know?
When Sue, Lydia and myself started working together, we discovered we all had the same birthday (28 August). Very strange indeed.

 

Last year we provided 11,300 food parcels to people in Slough and the surrounding areas who were facing a food poverty crisis.
