The huge variety of volunteering opportunities in Lincolnshire includes roles supporting people with ill health, with the county’s police, as drivers and so much more.

LCVS is delighted to have helped local groups in East Lindsey, Boston and South Holland secure grant Round 4 funding from Ørsted’s East Coast Community Fund (ECCF). The successful groups are among 18 that received funding, which is awarded every six months to groups in coastal areas of Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Yorkshire. Round 4 awards to individual groups ranged from £1,280 and £30,000.

LCVS chief executive David Fannin, who sits on the advisory group to Grantscape which administers the community fund, says: “We are delighted that we have been able to support the local organisations which have been successful in the latest round of funding. We would like to hear from other Lincolnshire groups in the ECCF area who have ideas which involve supporting volunteering and creating confident, resilient communities, who may be interested in the next round of funding, which closes 23rd January 2019. LCVS is here to help.”
