A theatre in Skegness is calling for more dedicated individuals to not only come and socialise and have fun but also volunteer their skills.

More spots have become available through the Embassy Theatre’s popular volunteer scheme which has been running since 2009 and a range of activities are available this autumn.

“Volunteering here is much more than just taking tickets and watching shows, although they are obviously perks! The image of the volunteer has changed over time - gone is the stereotype of the middle-aged housewife with time on her hands,” said Pollyanne Trapmore-Shaw.

“Now volunteers come from all walks of life: they may be a teenager learning to manage responsibility and increase confidence, an executive sharing management skills with the group or a retiree enjoying a new friendship as a volunteer,” added Polly.

Dedicated volunteers (pictured) enjoy not only the job aspect but also the community and socialising element it brings.

Coral Morrison, volunteer, said: “I love working here, it’s fantastic, everyone is so welcoming and people come from all walks of life and are lots of different ages. I work when I have spare time and it’s a great way to meet new people and have fun at the same time.

Tasks have involved the four local ladies taking part in monthly mail-outs to hoteliers and businesses in Skegness.

“They will all be delivered on-foot with trolleys by another team of four next week - a great way to interact with the businesses and network their idea,” explained Polly.
