Christine volunteers at FareShare East Midlands four days a week, and as a Warehouse Team Leader helps other volunteers organise their daily tasks.
Christine is incredibly committed - she volunteers at the FareShare East Midlands warehouse four days a week, 8:30am-6:30pm. "I like having my Fridays off!", she says with a smile. After many years of office work, Christine says she enjoys volunteering in an environment where she can move around and do something a bit more physical and tangible. She is interested in how food is managed and has learned a lot about that at FareShare East Midlands.
As she's been helping the organisation for over three years, her knowledge of the daily operations is extremely valuable, and allowed her to take on the role of a Volunteer Warehouse Team Leader. She helps bring volunteers together and organise the daily tasks, welcoming newcomers and answering questions. She loves working with people and this role allows her to be sociable.
We met Christine at the opening of a new warehouse for FareShare East Midlands, funded by Asda's Fight Hunger Create Change Programme. She told us about her experience as a volunteer:
