Unsung heroes sought

Have your say

IF YOU know someone who goes the extra mile to lend a helping hand – or a group that makes an outstanding contribution to your local community – now is the time to speak up.

South Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service is seeking nominations for its 2011 Volunteer Sector Recognition Awards.

SLCVS chief executive Ladey Adey said: “We, as an organisation, are so privileged that we get to work with Lincolnshire’s fantastic voluntary sector on a daily basis, but this is your opportunity to say thank you to those individual volunteers and community groups and organisations you feel make your community what it is.”

The deadline for nominations is Friday, October 14. Forms can be downloaded from www.southlincscvs.org.uk or by calling 01205 365580 or email enquiry@southlincscvs.org.uk

nNew awards this year recognise anyone showing excellence on a board of trustees or management committee and youth volunteering.
