A Lincolnshire inter-faith group could face closure if more volunteers do not come forward to help.

The Lincoln Inter Faith Forum, which raises awareness of different religions, has operated in the city for more than 20 years.

It is the county's only member of a national inter-faith group but now faces an uncertain future.

Co-chair of the group Lily Amery said there was a real need for people to come forward.

Sharing faith

"The aim of the group is to bring different faiths together and to share our beliefs with each other.

"We have members from the Buddhist, Muslim, Sikh, Bahá'í and Hindu communities - but need more people to get involved," she said.

"Especially people who have expertise in the business side of things.

"Our former treasurer and secretary was very good at organising events and making links with other inter-faith groups.

"Even a small business like ours really needs someone to help with the organisation and promotion."
