Our colleagues went back to school as they helped give St Faith’s Community Hall in Lincoln a brand-new lick of paint.

As part of our volunteer scheme colleagues along with students from the University of Lincoln rolled up their sleeves and readied their paint brushes to refurbish St Faith’s Community Hall.

Volunteers Julie Bell from the Food Operations team and Vicki Adams from the Health and Safety department both went to school at the hall. It was a surreal experience for both to be back.

Julie said: “It’s very nostalgic to be back. I have some very fond memories here and it’s good we’re bringing some good to the community.”

Vikki said: “It’s been nearly 50 years since we’ve last been here and lots has changed. We used to get free milk in glass bottles and school meals were only 12½p!”

Volunteer Brett Ayres from the Store Development Team is the leader of the Scout group which uses the hall.

He said: “This work will definitely liven the place up. The whole ethos of the Lincolnshire Co-op is to help the community and this work is giving much needed time and work to a worthy cause.”
