Meet the team:

Administrator: Sarah Kellett.

sarah2Sarah keeps us all organised and on track.  She's also the longest serving member of staff so is a great source of information. Although part-time Sarah is in the office for at least a part of every weekday, helping ensure we're here and available should you need to contact us.   

 

 

 

 

Volunteer & Referrals Co-ordinator: Peter Gray

Peter Gray3

 
Pete is our eyes and ears on the ground.  He liaises with our fantastic team of volunteers (the core of the charity) putting them in touch with people in need of a little help or support.  He also liaises with other local organisations we partner with, helping ensure a joined-up approach in Ludlow with charities and social enterprises working together to make Ludlow an even better place to live, if that's possible.  Pete is also part-time and typically works 24 hours a week over Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 

 

 

 

 

 Food Coordinator: Di Garrini

 Di is our 'go to' person for all things food.  She works closely with our volunteer cooks to help ensure our community lunches are served each Tuesday at Helena Lane and does a great job helping ensure we're able to supply food where it is needed, from hot homemade soups at events like Fireworks Night on Gallows Bank to freshly prepared meals which are then frozen and passed to Foodbank for use in their food parcels.  Di is also looking at the wider issues of reducing food waste locally be redistributing surplus food and using food as a social event to help reduce loneliness and isolation.  Di works 30 hours a week, usually Monday to Thursday

 Our vision is for a happy, hospitable, compassionate and just community which helps people help themselves, and our mission is to provide a more effective community process for achieving this vision. We do this by creating a network of volunteers which works with agencies, charitable organisations, local businesses and churches, to identify and provide relief to people in need and find community building solutions in Ludlow and the surrounding villages in South Shropshire.

 

We are funded by the community and many other groups, including:
