A member of Worthing Fairtrade Town Steering Group and a member of the Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton Fairtrade Committee, Rod has always had fair trade at his heart. He recalls a Shared Interest Ambassador presentation fuelling his interest in becoming an investor.
Rod has campaigned with Oxfam and other development agencies for a number of years, he has also been to Ghana to visit a fairtrade banana plantation.
Four years ago Rod himself took on the role of Ambassador for Shared Interest. Rod has made a number of connections in his role as an Ambassador. Read more about Rod's connections here.
When I retired from work & had time on my hands I considered being an Ambassador something worthwhile as I agree with its principals and also have involvement in my local Fairtrade group.
Rod has connected with a variety of local groups across different areas of the local community. As well as Worthing Fairtrade Town Steering Group, Rod has also connected with Transition Town Worthing, Worthing Greenpeace Group, St Mary of the Angels Catholic Church Justice & Peace Group and the local World Development Movement group.
