The Surprising Benefits of Volunteering

When it comes to volunteering – all you need is passion and positivity!
Volunteering can be extremely beneficial to you. It is a two way street that can benefit you and your family as much as the charity. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you to make new friends, expand your network in the local community and boost your social skills.

Make New Friends

Volunteering provides the perfect opportunity to meet new people.
By volunteering you can also strengthen your ties to the community and broaden your support network, helping you to discover new people with common interests, neighbourhood resources and fun activities and events.

LINC is a great charity to volunteer for. It is local and friendly but with the ultimate goal of raising funds to support cancer patients and their families

Volunteering is good for your mind and body

Volunteering can provide a sense of purpose. Whatever your life situation, volunteering can take your mind off your own challenging times by providing a focus and a feeling of doing something good for others.

Physically, volunteering can also take you outside into the fresh air or present you with opportunities to become involved in more active pursuits.

Volunteering can advance your career

If you are considering a change of career or are about to embark on employment, volunteering can help you gain experience in your area of interest and meet people in the field that you are interested in. It is the chance to try out a new career without a full commitment.

Volunteering can enable you to practise important skills used in the workplace such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving and organisation.

Teach Valuable Skills

Volunteering can teach you valuable job skills. Retail experience can be gained by volunteering in the LINC charity shop or personal skills can be advanced by helping out at a public event.

We always need volunteers at all of our events.

The LINC shop is always grateful for volunteers.

From the volunteers’ perspective, LINC is not just another cancer charity. L is also for “life-changing” – which not only applies to the patients but also medical staff, carers and volunteers involved. I is for “important” – the work LINC does is vital to the support of local cancer patients. N is for “neighbourly” – volunteering seems so much more vital when directly helping family, friends and neighbours. C is for “care and compassion” – attributes which abound in the LINC family!
