  • Sharon, Referrals Manager

    Sharon moved from Germany 13 years ago, not intending to stay. But three boys later, she is still here, loving the way Camden brings such a rich mix of people together from around the world. She loves the way Little Village brings people together and enables her to be part of her local community.

  • Barb, Stock Room Manager

    As a Kiwi, having spent nearly 20 years working as a pharmacist in the NHS and now bringing up my daughter in London, Barb feels very lucky to have become involved in Little Village.  She things it’s amazing to see the local community supporting each other in so many ways and how the ‘circle of giving’ makes such a difference to people’s lives.

  • Kirsten, Advisory Group Chair

    After watching Little Village thrive in South London, Kirsten led the work to create our second site in Camden, and ran our service north of the river before moving into the advisory group role.  For Kirsten, Little Village shows the wonderful things people can accomplish when they come together to help their community.

  • Cath, Treasurer

    Cath loves the idea that through Little Village, useful and beloved children’s items can go on giving joy to others in the community that most need them and prevent waste in the process. She’s a mum to two messily artistic girls and found Little Village the perfect outlet to use her professional skills.

  • Varuna, Social Media Coordinator

    With a background in advertising, public relations and curating art and design, as well as being a mum of two, Varuna is passionate about the ethos of Little Village and the help we provide to the immediate community. She believes we need leave a better world for the future generations, by the small changes we make today.

  • Erin, Secretary and Outreach Team volunteer

  • Valeria, Fundraising Co-ordinator

  • Giusi, Family Liasion

    Guisi got involved with Little Village because it enables her to help people in need of support in the most practical way.

  • Isa, Family Liasion

    Isa works part time but she helps out when she can at the pop up donation mornings.  She finds it inspiring to see how generous people are with their donations and gifts.

  • Zoe, Delivery and collections

She does an amazing job of driving to collect donations, and says she never ceases to be warmed by the generosity of our supporters, whose donations allow us to spread the love and much needed resources within our community to those who need them the most.

  • Louise, Fundraising Volunteer

    Louise is excited to play a part in helping Little Village expand its caring and empowering work.  As a parent, a former non-profit director and a writer, Louise enjoys taking a break from her fictional worlds to raise awareness of the very real impact Little Village is having in our community, enabling us to help each other, and our planet.

  • Allan, Fundraising Volunteer

    Allan is a father of three and grandfather of one. He wants to help build stronger communities where people look out for each other. Allan believes that Little Village manages to do a lot with very little because so many people give their time and energy – it is a fantastic model of community vitality.

  • Rupali, Events Coordinator

    Rupali feels inspired by Little Village’s mission to pass on gifts from one family to another, giving out so much more than just things and bringing joy and dignity to both the giver and the receiver.
