Meet the Team

on 28 April 2016

Currently there are approximately 20 Team members at RECOVER, the number is variable as members move on & new members join.

RECOVER’s Team of volunteers now contribute approximately 1000 hours every month to the Social Enterprise.

Today 15 of our members gave consent to have a picture & a mention in this blog.

Here goes with most recent Team members first….

Julie W. reinforces daily why we are so passionate about RECOVER. From apprehensive to always willing & able to have a go – especially if it includes ‘purples’. Julie also has taken responsibility for shopping & making fabulous lunches for the entire Team every day.

 glennFinishingTouches600x634

Glenn H. is a real Gentleman and always ready to help out in any situation. His skills and sense of humour have gone from strength to strength. If you are after a great deal he may say ‘meet you half-way’.

Rick D. has learnt many skills & now trains newer members in how to use our sewing machines. Along with Glenn they both are also very conscientious in keeping the workshop ship shape.

 kamilDecoDeckChair600x400

 

Kamil P. is a professional commercial upholsterer who has been providing training to our Team right from the start. Kamil was involved in advising with the set up of our upholstery section, which has proved to be safe, clean & efficient. Three years on & Kamil has the patience of a saint, we feel very lucky to have met him.

poppyGoldLeafing500x450

 

Poppy was from the initial group of volunteers that were involved even prior to us finding our premises. Also the biggest surprise of all – three years later & she’s running the show & being paid ‘to boot’.

 

No stopping him now!

 

Ian B. ‘the special one’ !
