Caistor Volunteer Awareness Day
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Volunteers at Caistor Arts and Heritage (CAHC) will be thanked for their contribution at a Volunteer Awareness Day taking place on Friday 8th June to mark Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1-7 June. The free drop-in event will take place from 10am-2pm, and people who are new to volunteering are invited to a “lets’ talk about volunteering” session from 10am-12pm.
CAHC exists to enrich the community of Caistor and surrounding area with experiences of heritage, art, culture and knowledge in a welcoming and encouraging environment. The operation and development of the Centre, the Charity and its’ activities, events and hospitality rely considerably on the support of volunteers at all levels. We have 70 volunteers who support our café, library, admin/marketing, maintenance, sales, fundraising, art and heritage.
“In the last seven years our volunteers have become the driving force behind the Centre and have achieved much more than was originally thought possible.” Christine Brewster, Volunteer Coordinator
Volunteers are central to the work of countless charities and other organisations. They are a valuable presence in many communities, making a difference in places as diverse as sports clubs, libraries, schools and hospitals.
Voluntary Centre Services exists in West Lindsey to help individuals to access their ideal volunteering opportunity. Area Coordinator Heather Arnatt reports that “We supported new volunteers to contribute over 4,800 hours of volunteering in West Lindsey in 2017/18, providing essential support within community organisations. It is important that this enormous commitment of time is recognised”.
