Gareth Jones

My Role as a Volunteer Van Driver has enabled me to meet some incredibly dedicated and inspiring people with the Nugent team and some real characters of our local community.

The work is quite physical but very rewarding and personally give me a great sense of purpose and fulfilment.

Our main role is to collect general household items and clothes from our dedicated regulars and generous public and deliver back to your shop in Allerton Road, who work tirelessly to keep everything organised and well presented with such limited pace.

Describe your job in 6 words:

Fun, satisfying, professional, organised, humbling and teamwork!.


Coffee and a biscuit at the shop after a busy morning.

One thing no one knows about me:

Absolutely no sense of direction!

Favourite possession:

Wedding ring.

My heroine:

Sam, my partner in crime, I would literally be lost without him!
