Volunteering Canterbury – Volunteer Recognition Awards 2019.
Community Care Lincoln is very proud that their Home Share Volunteer team received an award at the Volunteering Canterbury ‘Volunteer Recognition Awards 2019.’ In recognition of an outstanding voluntary contribution to the community the award was presented by Hon Ruth Dyson MP.
“A sense of inclusion and countering isolation for elderly or health affected people is the result of the individualised attention to all those who attend at a weekly social group run by the Home Share volunteers implementing the Lincoln and Districts Share Programme.”
