Tribute to Robert (Bob) Eva

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Robert Eva (Bob), one of our most dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. We send our condolences to Bob’s family and hold them in our prayers.

Bob started volunteering with Southwark Foodbank in November 2017 and was incredibly involved in all aspects of the foodbank’s operations helping in the warehouse, delivering food, and fundraising. He was a regular with us on Foodbank Fridays where he braved early (and often very cold) mornings at London Bridge Station. It was quite a sight to see Bob and his big booming voice, appealing to commuters to support the Southwark Foodbank. He became the face of our Christmas 2020 Feed A Family Appeal.

A warm hearted and generous person, who gave so much of his time to support his local community with enthusiasm and compassion, he will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.
