Meet the Trustees

Salisbury Foodbanks Next Chapter

Chas Kimber Chair of Trustees & Treasurer
Chas has lived and worked in or around Salisbury all his life and has recently taken over as Chair having been involved with Salisbury Foodbank since it became a stand-alone charity, initially as part of the Community Money Advice Team, and now as admin/warehouse helper and Trustee.
Peter Horwood

After a long career working in the London Advertising and Promotion industry Peter retired to Salisbury and immediately became involved in an increasing number of community groups. First to contact was The Trussell Trust, whose activities were well known and admired. To date Peter has spent seven years working both in the foodbank warehouse and front line in the Salisbury foodbank centre, meeting, greeting and offering help and encouragement to those in need.

Filled with a burning sense of the need for Social Justice, Peter is fully committed to helping people in difficulty and, in the longer term, creating change that will remove the need for foodbanks.
