Lincolnshire Sport is looking for volunteers to help organise events such as the Market Rasen 10k.

Following on from the success of the Games Makers at the London 2012 Olympics and the national programme Sport Makers, Lincolnshire Sport has launched the brand new local initiative called Lincolnshire Volunteer Force to increase physical activity and sport throughout communities.

Team members will work with Lincolnshire Sport to assist and deliver events, to be a community focal point for physical activity events and be part of a team of volunteers that helps get the county active.

Volunteers will benefit from free specific training, free volunteering uniforms as well as the opportunity to up skill qualifications.

Tom Armstrong, Workforce Development Manager at Lincolnshire Sport, said: “The programme inspires people to rejuvenate their communities through volunteering in sport and by encouraging more people to be active with local and community wide events.

“If you are passionate about sport in the county and understand the benefits of increasing physical activity and sporting opportunities in your community then this programme is exactly for you.

“A county wide integrated volunteer network can help us unlock a new generation of volunteers, thereby raising participation levels across all communities, ages and backgrounds.

“Working in partnership with all districts is the key to this.

“I would encourage anyone who is wishing to volunteer in sport, improve their CVs and take up a new hobby to register.”
