ABOUT - our journey so far

Hadleigh Foodbank Charity was founded in 2020 and has continued working hard with the assistance of our members and volunteers to help individuals in our local area. Our work has evolved over the past 2 years and due to the growth of the Charity, it became apparent that the name Hadleigh Foodbank Charity did not fit with all that we do, as we have diversified our support in so many ways. The name of our Charity was changed to Fresh Start Charity as of 30th March 2022.


Fresh Start Charity is dedicated to funding and delivering charitable services to our local community and we strive to inspire and improve the lives of those who need assistance. Get in touch to learn how you can make a difference at our Charity.

Meet the Trustees

Angela Gregg

Founder & Treasurer (Trustee)

Angela grew up in Hadleigh, Essex and is now funnily enough residing here in Hadleigh, Suffolk. She has three children, Hollie, Connor and Ellie. Angela’s career has been mainly in Sales and Marketing until she had to retire due to health in January 2019.  But as Angela doesn’t like sitting down, she decided to campaign to become a Town Councillor and was elected in May 2019.

In September 2020 she became the Deputy Mayor.  In July 2019 Angela joined the original Hadleigh Foodbank as her passion to help others and support her community was quite apparent.  With a fantastic amount of support from volunteers the Foodbank became a Charity and has diversified into what it is today - Fresh Start Charity.

Chris Warren

After leaving school, Chris was self-employed and had a shop in Hertfordshire before he decided to train as a Registered Nurse. Chris qualified as a Registered Learning Disabilities Nurse in 1999 and then as a Mental Health Nurse in 2005. He has experience working in both the public and private sector but currently work part time for a local NHS trust. Chris enjoys various hobbies, including gardening, cycling and walking their little rescue dog (recently fostered). He has been interested in supporting community projects that provide beneficial support due to the pressures of everyday life and the increase of the cost of living. Chris is enthusiastic and motivated to support Angela and the team in continuing to provide an essential service within the local community.



Hollie Gregg

HR Manager (Trustee)

Hollie is a mother of twin girls and is currently undertaking a BSc in Psychology with Criminology. She is in her final year and will then go on to take her Masters Degree. In her spare time, Hollie also volunteers as an appropriate adult for experience in working within the Police Force to find the right career choice once she completes her degree. Hollie is the youngest member of the Trustees and has volunteered to assist the HR Manager's role and hopes to gain valuable experience to ensure Fresh Start Charity and other branches of the charity run smoothly and correctly, which will build on her skills in general to take into her professional life and future career. She believes her young mind can bring a different perspective on matters within the charity and hopes to utilise this on any future projects Fresh Start Charity undertakes.
