Ben (Project Coordinator) and Christine (Library Manager) are our two paid members of staff, responsible for looking after our volunteer team and ensuring you get a great service when you use the library, visit a repair café or get in touch.
We are very grateful for the support of approximately 30 volunteers, including Caroline, Repair Café Coordinator and her team of repairers, those who support us in the library looking after our customers and Things, and people working behind the scenes on marketing and partnerships.
The volunteer Trustee board
Thank you also to our volunteer board of Trustees, who oversee our operations as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).
Allan Smith, Chair
Allan is a business coach helping people to maximise their potential. He brings many years’ experience on the boards of non-profits such as YMCA. And he shares our passion for helping people live well whilst minimising waste.
During her career in higher education, Philippa drove strategic initiatives to improve the quality of education and associated student services. She is active in the local community’s environmental groups, with an interest in doughnut economics and work on refill / zero-packaging initiatives.
Chris Lewins, Treasurer
Chris has been taking things apart and (sometimes) putting them back together again since before he could walk. In his professional life, he is a R&D engineer working on building new products and has been part of several small and growing businesses during his career. The opportunity to apply his skills to help reduce waste through sharing and repairing was irresistible and so he joined the board of Share at the start of 2022.
