Our Hero – Wendy Baverstock
Wendy works for Henbury and Brentry Community Centre. She has been coordinating food response during the pandemic in her locality: running a community fridge, collecting surplus food from supermarkets 5-days per week, parcels from FareShare. She then redistributes to those in need and does this all on a voluntary basis. Wendy has been engaging in this area for many years, and will continue to do so for many more to come!
