Ray volunteers at the Greenwich Community Food Coop's fruit and veg stall not only in Thamesmead but Abbey Wood and Woolwich too, meaning he volunteers three days a week for the residents of both Bexley and Greenwich boroughs.
"I've got spare time on my hands and I enjoy volunteering at the fruit and veg stalls, which involves selling fruit and veg, arranging the stall and talking to people about the importance of eating your five a day." said Ray.
"Because we make the food affordable, people keep coming back and it is nice to get to know people in my community. I have learnt a lot about people's behaviour and how to deal with different types of people.
"I have been on a few training courses, which has given me knowledge in First Aid, Food Hygiene and even a degree in Customer Service.
“I enjoy every minute of volunteering. I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for the fruit and veg stall.”
