International Women’s Day at FareShare: Meet Ashley
5 March 2019
5 March 2019
Continuing our female-focussed theme for International Women’s Day we’re saying hello (again) to Ashley, who you might remember from Student Volunteering Week.
Master’s student Ashley first heard about FareShare when she was writing her undergraduate dissertation on waste management.
A warehouse volunteer at FareShare Sussex, she says: “I think FareShare is fantastic. Sussex has a huge problem with homelessness so FareShare’s work is so necessary here.”
Ashley has been volunteering for just over a year. “Volunteering for FareShare is an enriching experience that everyone should get involved with,” she says. “Not only is it a lovely charity, it’s so flexible that it can fit into anyone’s life. Also, you can actually see how beneficial the charity is when you work there, and it actually feels like you are making a difference.”
“Volunteering for FareShare is an enriching experience that every woman should get involved with.”
Join Ashley as a FareShare volunteer and find out how you could make a difference in your local community here.

Throughout this week, we’ll be sharing stories from women who are working to make a difference across the charity, from volunteering in the FareShare Regional Centres, to heading up our national campaigns.

Steve’s volunteering with FareShare Sussex helped him land a driver position with the Regional Centre, a new role created thanks to Asda funding.

Half term should be a time of fun, but, for the one in five children growing up in a household where food is scarce, the break can be hard.
