Here are some of the amazing team that volunteer or work for Exeter Pound



Clare Bryden


“Clare’s background is in science, economics, energy and the environment.”


She is currently a freelance writer and website developer, an artist with Particulart, and on the TEDxExeter organising team. She was nobbled to be a Director of Exeter Pound, but as she has an interest in Transition and the thriving grassroots movements in Exeter, she might have volunteered anyway!



Gabriel Costello

I study A levels in English Language, German and Geography and will be reading the latter at university in the autumn. I've lived in Exeter since 2001 and enjoy the wide variety of volunteering roles at the Exeter Pound. It's great to see our city become more sustainable and resilient.
