Local GB athlete volunteers at FareShare Merseyside to tackle food waste

OLYMPIC Taekwondo athlete, Henry Cookey, volunteered at FareShare Merseyside last week to give back to the local community and empower others to do the same. His visit marked the start of a new partnership with Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, in which athletes use their spare time to tackle food waste.  The athlete, based in Liverpool, drove a refrigerated vehicle from FareShare Merseyside to 6 frontline charities and community groups, to help tackle hunger and food waste. Along with a group of volunteers, Henry helped redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to vulnerable people in Merseyside. In total, FareShare Merseyside delivers to 151 frontline charities on a weekly basis.

Henry Cookey, local Heavyweight Taekwondo champion, said:- "The work FareShare does is amazing and I just couldn't say no when the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust asked me to volunteer. I feel like I've really helped people in the local area who need it, and I urge others to do the same for such a fantastic cause!"

Mark Hall, Development Manager for FareShare Merseyside, said:- "A huge thank you to Dame Kelly Holmes Trust for supporting FareShare and inspiring others to follow in their footsteps. This partnership is fantastic for Merseyside as we are adopting an alternative resource to ensure the food we receive is being redistributed to our frontline charities. Without volunteers, we simply couldn't operate and get the food out to people who need it the most in homeless shelters, children's breakfast clubs and domestic violence refuges."

Leigh Hall, Area Manager at Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, said:- "All of our world class athletes are passionate about giving back to the local community and want to change the lives of local people through the work that they do. We are fortunate enough to have a strong, and exceptionally talented team of athletes who go above and beyond in their communities. True partnerships are key to the work we do, both locally and nationally and the value FareShare adds to community groups and charities is inspirational."

Volunteers can register their interest at:- Fareshare.Org.UK/Volunteering or contact FareShare Merseyside on:- 0151 486 1139 or send an email to:- Mark.Hall@fareshare.org.uk.
