A small, dedicated team of staff and volunteers work to make the network happen. We also work with a number of associates on specialist projects.
VJ – ( Ed Tombs) – Finance Manager
Responsible for all aspects of financial management, forecasting, reporting and support to LCRN members as well as for supporting the LCRN Administration and Finance team.
Founder employee of LCRN with 20 years experience of supporting SMEs, voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations in the cultural, creative and environmental sectors. Co-founder and producer of the annual Buddhafield Festival.
Alice Walker – Project Executive
Getting to know the world out there was in this Londoner’s mind when she went for a Geography BA (hons) at the University of Plymouth. With her degree over, she has set her sights on the world of waste minimisation and re-use – luckily for us – and joined the LCRN’s ranks as an intern for the membership and communications team in 2010. Five years on, she remains a central element to our work as the Project Executive for LCRN-promoted Real Nappies for London and any other projects she can get her hands on. A team player at heart, she also performs administrative tasks for the office and jumps onto the pitch for two football teams at the weekends and on Mondays.
Hilary Vick – Project Manager, Real Nappies for London
Hilary joined LCRN to manage the Real Nappies for London voucher scheme in May 2010. She is keen to help more boroughs reduce nappy waste and is happy to discuss bespoke incentives and rewards including helping local agents, nappy libraries and real nappy entrepreneurs. She founded local nappy laundry service Nappy Ever After in 2003 and is still a director of this not-for-profit nappy company.
Our team of volunteers
As with much of the community resource sector, volunteers are a crucial part of our operation. Without their commitment and hard work we simply wouldn’t exist!
Jose Rojo, Newsletter, Press and Web Support Assistant (Volunteer)
LCRN’s latest addition, Jose will be gathering news stories for the newsletter we send out every two weeks and keeping our website and social media profiles updated. A trained journalist, his passion for environmental reporting dates back to the year he spent discovering Finland and its jaw-dropping natural scenery. These days, he keeps a busy schedule doing communications work for the third sector, writing articles on a freelance basis, trekking, learning new languages and playing the flute along with a handful of other Celtic music lovers.
