Hands-on Charity

Many of us support our local foodbanks through donations, either while doing our weekly shop at the supermarket or as part of an organised drive at work, especially during the festive season, but OV Owien Harriott-Davis (Os 16-18) has taken this a step further by donating his time to help out at his local foodbank.

Owien explained, “I currently work at Waste Efficiency, which is a waste and cleaning management services company based in Worcester, with over 150 staff members nationwide. Our aim is to help companies with their corporate social responsibilities (CSR) by finding the best solution both economically and environmentally to help drive the reduction of waste within busy manufacturing environments.

“This year, Waste Efficiency decided to support the Worcester foodbank by providing pairs of hands and donations to help with their busy festive period. I signed up as soon as the opportunity arose!”

Owien was a great team player at King’s too, a Team Captain and representing the School in both the 1st XV and 1st Football team, returning to help out as a Sports Gap Student. His love of sport continues, and Owien is currently playing semi-pro rugby with Luctonians RFC in the National League 2 North.

With his Luctionians RFC hat on, Owien has also helped out at non-profit charity Wild Goose. Based in Worcester, Wild Goose offers people from all backgrounds and abilities the opportunity to learn about and experience the beauty, honesty and excitement of rural life, hands on. Owien spent time there over the summer, helping them out. You can watch about it on Facebook

Owien added, “Taking part in charity work is very important to me and offers me a chance to give back to people who are in less fortunate circumstances. I personally feel that giving up a small portion of my time in order to help out others is both rewarding and humbling.”
