Meet the Team

Our team is waiting to help you.

Richard James (Manager):

Previously a baker and a sofa salesman I started Rags2Riches4Schools in 2012 and I am very proud of the personal service we deliver. I’ve worked hard to develop a professional relationship with each school, we do what we can to help you make your collections as easy and successful as possible.

In my opinion, communication and planning are key to delivering the service we do, and each day brings new challenges and new success stories.


Ilona Williams (Office Manager):

I am a mother of two children who are forever outgrowing their clothes, I joined Rag2Riches4Schools in November 2013, having successfully organised termly clothing collections for my son’s school where I am treasurer of the PTA – so I’ve experience of our collections from both sides!

I’m mostly based in the office to help take bookings and provide support as well as making sure you receive your bags and collection tickets, though once in a while they do let me out and about so you may see me from time to time.


Peter (Van Driver):

Hi, I’m Peter one of our collection drivers.

I was overwhelmed and amazed by the effort and determination the team puts into their work. The importance of recycling is not only educating our young people, but it’s also giving hope to other people who are not as fortunate as us.
