Rebecca Ford – Project Assistant

Rebecca joined the Trust in November 2023 as Project Assistant for All Hands on the Don. This is the National Lottery Heritage Fund project for increasing local wellbeing, community action, employability and skills, and connection with local heritage, all by taking care of the River Don.

She will aid the project in many ways, including practical volunteer days, citizen science, outreach events, media and publicity.

Based in Sheffield, Rebecca has previously volunteered for several of her local environmental organisations such as the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, the South Yorkshire Bat Group, and DCRT! She has also worked as an assistant ecologist for an environmental consultancy in Sheffield, and as a communications assistant for a local climate alliance.

In her free time, Rebecca enjoys cooking and baking with friends, crocheting, ecological ID, and reading. Read her blog post here.
