4 March 2019

It’s International Women’s Day this Friday and, to celebrate, we’re shining a light on some of the amazing woman at FareShare.

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.

Today we’re catching up with Betsy, who volunteers in the office at FareShare Sussex. “I volunteer to keep me busy, mentally occupied,” she says. “To meet new people and also to be socially useful.”

And what’s Betsy’s message for International Women’s Day?
“There are some great women here, let’s have some more,” she says. “FareShare is a welcoming, inclusive organisation, working really hard to accommodate people’s individual skills and needs.”

Whether you’re in work or retired, student or graduate – there’s role at FareShare for anyone who wants to make a difference. Find out more about volunteering here.
