Council leader praises year-round work of county’s volunteers

The first week in June marks National Volunteers’ Week and though it may be an ordinary week for many people, there’s nothing ordinary about our volunteers, says Lincolnshire County Council Leader Martin Hill.

Writing on the Council’s web site he says: “In choosing to dedicate time and energy to benefit others, you and volunteers across Lincolnshire, go above and beyond to help our communities.

“Volunteers’ Week – celebrated in the first week of June – is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.

“This year, to mark His Majesty the King’s coronation, Monday 8 May was ‘The Big Help Out’ and showed just how highly regarded volunteers are throughout the United Kingdom.

“I hope and believe this will inspire even more people to share their skills, energy and creativity in the way you do.

“As well as helping others, volunteering can help improve your well-being, gain valuable new skills and experiences, and boost your confidence.

“Your work benefits everyone who lives in, works in and visits Lincolnshire. Some of you have volunteered for many years, and some are new to supporting local people and places. You should each be incredibly proud of your contributions.

“Whatever your reasons for volunteering with Lincolnshire County Council or the many other causes and organisations across the county; however much time you give and wherever or whomever you support; whatever you achieve, share and give back. I would like to say thank you and tell you how much our volunteers are appreciated and valued.

“If you would like to get in touch about any aspect of volunteering with us, you can find out more on our website.”
