We are a diverse team of all ages: from young people volunteering for the first time, to retirees bringing their experience to support our shop customers. 

We are a largely volunteer run organisation. We depend on dedicated collectors and hub teams, as well as the professional skills and advice of board members.

We would not be able to run without the dedication of collectors, project volunteers and all those who give up so much time to our mission.
