Rachel Smith

Administration Volunteer

Rachel has volunteered with Level Trust for over 3 years. She loves the way Level Trust meets needs at a very personal level, for families who find they can’t afford school shoes and warm coats through no fault of their own.

“I sat next to my daughter in hospital for 20 back operations and could have been overwhelmed by the fear I felt for her. The support of others saw me through. Now I can give back to those who find themselves in need.”

Rachel is married to Richard and they have 2 growing teenagers who get through lots of school uniform!
