Have your say

A monthly column from Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service

Are you a community group, a charity or a not-for-profit organisation, large or small? If you are, do you need help?

This could be one-off help or maybe you need raffle prizes, or to raise money for a particular outing or event. LCVS works with lots of South Holland businesses and organisations that want to help local groups and encourage their staff to volunteer. It is possible staff may be able to volunteer for an hour or two during working hours, or raise money for a charity dear to their hearts.

If your group needs any help please contact us on the details below.

Trustees helping trustees

Local businesses already support community groups and charities in different ways, for example Moore Thompson, in partnership with LCVS, hold bi-monthly meetings for trustees and committee members to discuss current topics.

The next meeting is on Tuesday, September 9 at Hills Department Store at 7.30am and this month the topic is Reserves Policies – all trustees and committee members are welcome. If you would like to attend please contact Gill Williamson on 01775 718008 or gill.w@lincolnshirecvs.org.uk by September 3.

New volunteering opportunities

This month some wonderful groups need volunteers. Could you help out at a social group held each Friday at Johnson Hospital? Volunteers are needed to help run this support group.

Would you like to volunteer with teenagers? We have two opportunities: the Vista Crew, a fortnightly Saturday youth drop-in centre, would like volunteers to help out and have some fun; South Holland Youth and Community Development Team is looking for Youth Support Volunteers, working with young people in youth clubs or where they congregate.

There are opportunities in a new charity furniture recycling project due to open soon in Pinchbeck, selling second-hand furniture to the general public. Could you communicate with people, making them feel at ease, be flexible with time and be happy to work on your own and as part of a team?
