Volunteers from across the sector went along to discuss their own experiences including people who give their time to the Voluntary Car Service, Home Start East Lindsey, Befriending Service and even the local hospitals.

Each filled in a post-it note highlighting what they did in their role which was put on the wall at the centre.

Nicki Lee, volunteering officer for LCVS said: “Things are going on all over the area and it’s a case of being able to say thank you.

“Thanks to people giving up their time for these organisations lots of things are able to happen.

“Volunteering is very much about giving something back to the community. It’s a great way for people to improve their CV and doing something positive while you’re looking for a job always looks very good.”
