Paying It Forward
It feels like a long time ago ...
…when I first joined the salvage with FWRD in August 2016. I quickly became friends with Angus and Mark from Herts for Refugees, They immediately took me under their wing and I spent the day with them collecting tents and other useful items, which they went on to deliver to refugee camps around Europe. They have been very supportive whilst I have been coming up with my ideas and we continue to meet up in festival fields around the country during the summer, where I still help them collect tents for refugees. Now, they also bring me materials from broken tents for my projects.
I have been truly inspired by their personal dedication, as well as the love and hard-work they put into this charity, and I wanted to contribute more than just a few hours in a field every Summer. So, when I started to pull together my business plan, it was pretty easy to choose which charity I wanted to support.
