Lincoln City Foundation is recognising the efforts of its volunteers during Volunteers’ Week, an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering and who chose to use their time and efforts to benefit others.
Across the Foundation, we engage with a number of volunteers who support us to deliver our various programmes and enable more people to access our activities. Whilst some of the regular volunteering roles individuals undertake with the Foundation may be temporarily paused due to the current Covid-19 outbreak, in recent weeks we have also seen new volunteers connect with us through coronavirus related roles.
The diversity of the programmes delivered by the Foundation means we have volunteers who are engaged in various volunteering positions and we offer opportunities which can appeal to different individuals. These include:
· Supporting the delivery of community English language classes to non-native speakers
· Engaging with our Community Organising team and getting involved with resident-led projects in the Sincil Bank area of Lincoln
· Supporting the delivery of our Half Marathon event alongside our event partners Curly’s Athletes
· Helping with further events as part of our developing events programme across Lincoln
· Matchday opportunities across home fixtures at the LNER Stadium
Throughout Volunteers’ Week we will be highlighting some of the fantastic volunteers we have at the Foundation and across some of our partners, and will importantly being say ‘thank you’ to them for the lives they are helping us to inspire.
Charlotte Hornsby, Operations Manager at Lincoln City Foundation, said: ‘We are extremely proud of the efforts of our volunteers at the Foundation and the impact they make across our programmes. People tend not to volunteer to gain recognition, but in a time when being kind, looking out for one another and a sense of community has become more apparent than ever, it felt fitting to recognise volunteers in this way.”
Paul Hamnett, Head of Foundation, also has the following message to share:
