John Trevillion

Goodbye and Thank you!


John Trevillion, the former Chief Officer of FRADE, lost his fight to cancer on 5 November 2017.  John was a very private man but had a wonderful sense of humour and fought for human justice and equality.


John joined FRADE over 20 years ago. He was passionate supporting FRADE’s aims to reduce poverty across the Tees Valley, reduce waste through the re-use of donated household items and provide employment and volunteering opportunities.


John built up Frade from a dilapidated local authority building to 3 stores in Darlington, Middlesbrough and Stockton.  Income increased 10 fold to £289,000 helping 7,638 households, diverting 217 tonnes away from landfill and created 7 paid posts and supported hundreds of volunteers build confidence and get back on track.  He will be sorely missed.
