Our Volunteers

Diana

Diana became an ambassador after being an ethical investor for several years:

“I retired a year ago, partly to free up time for volunteering and campaigning. I’ve visited Malawi and Tanzania in the past, and found the global range of Shared Interest very exciting. It’s a great cause and I’ve been impressed with the organisation – efficient but caring.

“I love having a part, however tiny, in something so worthwhile and truly life-changing. Only nine months into my role, I feel I’ve hardly got of the ground myself yet, but look forward to contributing more.”

Bill

Bill has been an ambassador for three years, although he has invested in Shared Interest for over 20 years.

He said: “I decided to become an ambassador as I had more time on my hands and wanted to make a further contribution. I find the work of Shared Interest fascinating and love talking about it to other people. Having travelled to Chile, Ethiopia, and India, I have seen the challenges faced in disadvantaged communities and would like to think that I am helping in some small way.”

Hattie

Hattie se hizo voluntaria con nosotros mientras estaba en la universidad:

“Shared Interest me llamó la atención debido a su enfoque en el comercio justo. Desde muy temprana edad, era consciente del comercio justo, ya que mi madre es una entusiasta partidaria, y ofrecerme como voluntario con Shared Interest fue otra forma de involucrarme.

“He ayudado con los envíos por correo, actualizando el sitio web y escribiendo artículos de noticias, así como también en puestos de trabajo en eventos.

“Lo más importante, ha sido bueno saber que estoy ayudando a Shared Interest a apoyar a las empresas de comercio justo en los países en desarrollo.

"Ha sido algo realmente emocionante, completamente separado de mi vida universitaria".
