In October 2013, at 76 years of age, Patrick was awarded an Outstanding Achievement award by Blaby District Council for his volunteering contribution at FareShare East Midlands.
Patrick says: “I really enjoy volunteering at FareShare and supporting the good work that they do. The staff and volunteers are a great bunch! I have volunteered in the past but volunteering at FareShare and being able to help divert surplus food to those in need is extremely satisfying. The groups that FareShare support are doing a great job helping to feed those less fortunate and I am grateful to be able to contribute”.
