A big thank you to the team!

We would like to extend thanks to the wider team, drivers, van hands, retail team and to the numerous volunteers who help us to do what we do.  We are a small team, but everyone’s efforts make us a great team.   Working together to ‘Help make Aberdeen Poverty free.


Our volunteers play a huge part in everything that we do, quite simply we couldn’t do what we do without you!  Whether you have some time on your hands, have recently been made redundant or have never worked, it does not matter, we want to hear from you!  We would be delighted to have you on board!
