Our time is precious

Did you know? Lincolnshire Co-op colleagues can spend two paid days a year volunteering to help local good causes.

Normally, colleagues might lend a hand during specially organised Busy Bee volunteer events, but the worldwide pandemic has made group activities difficult to arrange. 

Despite this, our colleagues are still finding ways to support our communities. 

Bransby Horses has almost 1,000 equines in its care, from horses and ponies to mules and donkeys .

Its main site was hit by flooding in November 2019 and the ongoing impact of coronavirus means support from Lincolnshire Co-op's Learning and Development Advisor Kathryn McFee couldn't come at a more crucial time.

She is Vice Chair and a Trustee of Bransby Horses along with her role in the Society, and uses her two paid days of colleague volunteering time per year to help do this.

“I started visiting Bransby when I was a child, so when the Society started offering the opportunity to volunteer at open days I jumped at the chance,” she said.

“My trustee role developed from my volunteering, as our Head of People and Performance Heather Lee suggested I should apply to be considered for the Board due to my HR background.

“The two days volunteering really helps me in my role and I’m really proud when I get positive feedback from the charity about the business.”
