Lincolnshire Community & Voluntary Service in the South Holland area promotes more than 150 volunteering opportunities.

Some of these opportunities may only be for a couple of hours once a month, for example a local history group which meets once a month on a Friday evening is looking for a secretary or assistant chairman to help them.

It may be once a week – a small welcoming community group desperately requires volunteers for a few hours on Fridays between 10am and 2pm to help members of this friendly group with games participation, to join in board games and support group members to learn new art and craft skills.

We also have opportunities that do not have a regular day and time and can fit it when a volunteer can spare a few hours here and there. One such opportunity that we are promoting at the moment is IT Technical Support: the volunteer will be required to show a competent knowledge of the Microsoft Office package and will have the opportunity to learn more technical packages.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities or would like to look at any of the other opportunities that we are promoting please either call us on 01775 768833 or email us at spalding.v@lincolnshirecvs.org.uk

In addition to volunteering, Lincolnshire Community & Voluntary Service also promotes community development and runs different training sessions. One such free course coming up soon is a Master Class in Social Media.

Likes, friends, hashtags, followers, shares, tweets, favourites, comments, polls, pins, profiles... is this all jargon to you?

If it is then come along to one of our master classes and learn how to make social media work for you.

During the session, we will be looking at how to set up a Twitter account, Facebook profile, pages and groups, the best of the rest in social media, including the basics of other social media resources, photo and video sharing sites, blog sites and useful apps. We’ll also be sharing top tips and advice on how to make social media work for you and your organisation.

• It’s on Thursday, February 20 at the Curlew Centre, Sutton Bridge (10am to 12noon).

To book a place or find out more, please call our Spalding office on 01775 718008.
