Our Team

Chief Officer Di Watkins

I have been chief officer at EDCCA since September 2018. Since then I have been working hard with the team to raise the profile of EDCCA in Easingwold and beyond. During the Covid Pandemic we worked especially hard to organise the delivery of prescriptions, shopping, meals on wheels five days a week and telephone befriending. In 2021 we have also played a major role in organising volunteers to help with the Vaccination Clinics. As a Charity we wouldn’t be anything without our amazing volunteers. Hats off to them. I look forward to taking EDCCA forward out of the pandemic and to exciting projects and activities to come.

Helen Beck

I live in Easingwold with my family and have worked for EDCCA for about 4 years. My job is to coordinate the Meals on Wheels Scheme which operates in Easingwold and the surrounding villages twice a week and supplies hot, nutritious meals from Clarks Bakers in Easingwold. The meals are delivered by EDCCA volunteers.

I also volunteer as joint organiser for the Knit and Natter Group who meet once a month at Springhill Court and knit items which we donate to various charities.
