It is national volunteers’ week 1st -7th June and what better way to say a very big thank you to all volunteers! #ThanksLincsVolunteers

Volunteers’ Week takes place every year and this year is even more essential to recognise the fabulous contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.

Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) think that at a time like this during the pandemic it is more important than ever to recognise and say thank you to volunteers in Lincolnshire.

The current pandemic has put the value of the contribution of community groups and volunteers firmly in the spotlight with volunteers stepping up to help people in ways never seen before. Conversely, the pandemic has made it impossible for many volunteers to give their time and feel the benefits of volunteering while services are on hold. Knowing that their support will still be needed and that they are still valued is a crucial message that we can help communicate through Volunteers Week.

So, whether services and volunteers are in full swing or they are on hold and doing their best to maintain the support and enthusiasm of their supporters, we want to help the voluntary and community groups in Lincolnshire say THANK YOU!

David Fannin CEO of LCVS said: “The Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated that volunteering counts, communities need support and volunteers matter.” He said, “Volunteers keep people safe and well and take pressure off frontline health and care workers. They give their time, knowledge and skills selflessly to look after our environment, historic buildings and animals, and perform many, many more great deeds. Whether it is in a crisis or simply to support vulnerable people and keep our communities going, volunteers make a very big difference.” #NeverMoreNeeded
