Holly volunteers when she can at Lewisham Foodbank, where Project Twist-It talked to her about the joy of stacking shelves – and the power of corrugated card.

I find that the most moving and shocking, and also the most inspiring part of this job is that you just get to meet a ton of people from a ton of different situations that could easily happen to you.

And they are amazing, interesting, lovely people.

I find that the best and the worst bit of it.
