Hi, my name is Nick and I started working at Viva! in January 2017 after being a primary school teacher for several years where I specialised in Language and Literacy and Curriculum Development. At Viva! I am responsible for many administrative tasks such as keeping customer records up-to-date and making sure all of the donations we receive go to the right place. I also carry out Viva's book-keeping and maintain the My Vegan Town website, making sure it always provides you with useful information about vegan places to eat, stay and shop in your local area. I am also responsible for overseeing the adoption scheme with our sanctuaries here in the UK and in Poland.
