Who we are

This page is still under construction! Please bare with us 🙂


We have our own little family here at Lily’s! We are made up of some amazing volunteers and staff and we are excited to introduce you to our family.



“My name is Gregg and I have always wanted to be a Chef. Ever since I was 14 my uncle taught me how to cook. I got taught some skills at school and also at college and I still remember and use many of those skills today. What they taught me has made me want to work in a restaurant more. I would like to work my way up a restaurant and eventually have my own restaurant or café. Thank you to Lily’s Bistro for teaching me all the skills all over again and I’m a lot happier with what I’m doing all over again!”



“My name is Gwen. I have been living in the UK for 27 years and I have loved so many amazing types of food from across the world. In France, we tend to be a bit more conservative and traditional so it has been a breath of fresh air. I love food and working at Lily’s as a volunteer has enabled me to witness amazing cooking that has been made from food surplus which is collected weekly. Anything is possible so you learn to be creative whilst helping with the food prep.”



“My Name is Jack and I’m nearly 25 years old. I would like to expand my horizons and train at Lily’s Bistro to then be able to move into working in commercial kitchens for big restaurants. I work at Lily’s 3 days a week as it helps keep me motivated to get into paid employment as opposed to playing computer games all day!”
