Like so many smaller charities, Rieves Foundation relies on volunteers to power our shops and our board of trustees. We're fortunate that our four founding trustees are on the board and further trustees joined in 2019. We would achieve nothing without the volunteers, suppliers and partners who help us to deliver all that we do.
