Meet The Team

We are driven by a strong sense of purpose and a desire to make a meaningful difference and we are always looking for ways to improve and innovate to serve our community better.

Matt Winder

Communications Officer/Borrow It Co-Ordinator

Matt was the first person to join the Borrow It team and has supported the creator of the project Emma Whitty-Haddock in developing it to the point where it was ready to launch. With a main focus on communications, Matt is Borrow It's social media and website specialist. As a Sandgrownun and Blackpool FC season ticket holder Matt is committed to supporting
the town he loves. He is also the great, great, great Grandson of Sir John Bickerstaffe who devised the plan to create Blackpool’s very own Eiffel Tower after visiting Paris, so Matt is related to Blackpool royalty!

Emma Whitty-Haddock

Volunteer Academy Manager

Emma came up with the idea for Borrow It Blackpool during the pandemic after seeing there was a gap for a service like this. As an avid DIY’er and crafter Emma wanted to provide not just the opportunity for the community to loan items but also to learn skills that help both them and the environment.
