You will be able find out about all the different volunteering opportunities in and around Skegness, meet other volunteers and give a little time to organisations to help them with their research, campaigning and awareness raising activities.

There will also be some guerilla gardening for green-fingered volunteers wanting to increase access to fresh vegetables by planting seeds for the mall’s new community vegetable planters.

There will also be opportunities to help promote the idea of volunteering through knitting a Skegness Volunteers’ character or making a balloon volunteer!

Why volunteer?

You benefit

Volunteering is an opportunity to meet new people and gain new skills.

Charities and community groups benefit

Without volunteers, many of the local organisations which provide such vital help and support for so many people would not be able to do what they do.

Others benefit

There are so many ways volunteers can get involved to make a huge difference to the lives of people in their communities.
