Volunteer

I gained an insight into the work of LCCT and its Horsforth Churches Community Outreach Project (HCCOP) when I helped Duncan Stow, a friend from my church and Project Leader of HCCOP, with some of his admin work last year.  This experience, along with some encouragement from my husband who had previously been on the Steering Committee for City of Sanctuary, prompted me to contact the LCCT central office to enquire about volunteering opportunities.  I have been volunteering with the core team since January 2019 and have enjoyed getting involved in a number of admin projects and tasks, including the office move, GDPR audit, gift aid reconciliation and updating the contact database.  I have spent many happy hours creating spreadsheets to keep myself and others on track with various projects!  Over the past year, I have learned more about LCCT’s member projects and find it encouraging to see how many faith-based and social action projects there are working with a wide range of people in our city.  It is really rewarding being part of the LCCT team and it feels like a family
