Rita Pearson

Rita has been a member of the YHA since 1965 and a volunteer for 25 years. She still goes hostelling today and thinks there is no better experience than walking in our beautiful countryside and at the end of the day joining like minded people in one of our hostels.  She enjoys visiting all our hostels, but has a particular soft spot for our small rural hostels, which offer a unique experience in some truly stunning locations.

Rita’s first experience of volunteering for the YHA was as a volunteer warden in south Devon and she is still a volunteer warden today. She is also a member of the Wales Volunteers which involves work parties in many of our Welsh hostels. Recently retired from paid employment in a busy IT department she brings knowledge of IT and catering to the board as well as extensive knowledge and boundless enthusiasm for the YHA.

Rita is married to David also a YHA volunteer and they have two children and two grandchildren.
