I founded Teams4U in 2006 in response to the Beslan atrocities in 2004, realising the difference short term Teams can make and wanting to give ordinary working people the opportunity to make a difference.
My role is to lead volunteer teams all over the world, particularly into Eastern Europe and Africa.
Married to Jill we have 3 daughters and 1 son, who have given us 6 wonderful grandchildren.
This is my seventh year working with T4U, supporting our incredible volunteer regional team who run Shoebox centres and collections across the country. I am also responsible for applying for grants and managing grant-funded projects. A main part of my role is overseeing our Develop with Dignity programmes in Uganda and Sierra Leone, and our WASH project. I regularly travel to Uganda facilitating training in Sexual Health and Education as well as leading Shoebox Distribution teams to Romania in December.
I am married to Garan who volunteers his IT skills, regularly helping me fix the office printer(!), and we have two children.
My working pattern is usually Tuesday-Thursday 9.30am-2.30pm
My role at Teams4U is looking after the books on a day to day basis and I am based in Warwickshire. I have worked voluntarily with Teams4U for 11 years
My work pattern is 1 day a week spread over the whole week, as I have a paid job working for a church as an Operations Manager, that takes up the rest of my time. It is best to get hold of me by email and I will respond as and when I can.
I lead The Community Church Wrexham with my wife Sue. I am the director of several charities that work both locally and overseas, including Erlas Gardens Project, Catch the Fire UK and Teams4U. I am also Director in the thriving online retail Seed Company, Just Seed Ltd. The setting up and running of my own company has been fulfillment of a long-held dream, not only to be a business owner but to have a place where people can be encouraged to fulfil their own dreams. My life is always busy with 5 children and continued attempts to grow a giant pumpkin!
I joined Teams4U 12 years ago and I still 100% enjoy working with amazing people who are making a real difference to the lives of children and their communities. I am a trustee with Teams4U but describe myself as a general dogs body, happy to be involved where needed. I have a passion for our African projects and especially in seeing the improvements to educational opportunities there.
I am very happy to share my experiences and encourage others to become involved.
I am a Horticultural Consultant at work and within the charity just one of the trustees.
Having worked all my life in horticulture in the glasshouse business growing pot plants and bedding plants I ran my own business up until 2012 when I semi-retired.
Have been involved in shoeboxes for over 20 years now and joined Teams4u 4 years ago.
Along with many amazing volunteers we help run an export warehouse in Evesham.
I am married to Alison and we have 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
A Certified Public Accountant by qualification, I have been involved with teams4u for over twelve years, deputizing Dave in managing teams of volunteers, planning & preparing programmes and overseeing all Uganda projects.
I am married to Jemima Omoding and we have two amazing Children
I am happy to be contacted at any time.
