The University of Lincoln’s Students’ Union has launched Make A Difference Week today, which encourages students to ‘make a difference’ to their local community.

In a post on their website, Lincoln SU said the week’s opportunities are a chance for students to ‘give something back, learn a new skill, meet new people or just simply have some fun’.

“You can then log your hard work as Volunteer hours, improve your Work Ready skills and make yourself even more employable,” they said.
