The work of the Pelican Trust has been completely transformative for some of the most vulnerable members of our communitites. Established in 1989, it has been dedicated to those in dire need; building confidence and skills and a path to recovery after struggle who, in turn, help local businesses too. If you don’t know them yet, please do take a look at their site, and support them if you are able.
Alongside working for better mental health and wellbeing in Lincolnshire, I am also a lifelong environmentalist, spending many years running children’s wildlife groups locally. I have always been strong on the natural environment and as a councillor I have a been proud to contribute to our local Climate Emergency Strategy and Action Plan. Along with many Lincolnshire locals, I also support the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, the Woodland Trust, the RSPB and Greenpeace with monthly donations.
Working alonside other Lincolnshire Independents, we see the impact of local charities daily, and as a team we support as many as we can, personally and as a group of volunteers. We have the Rainbow Letters coming in from children for older people. We have the Sunflower Project where everyone gets free seeds to brighten up our villages. I was able to make a donation personally this year to Sleafood Foodbank and we are currently campaigning for mental health first aid training for all.
Please let us know how we can continue to support you this year through our page on Facebook.
