This month is a quiet month in many trades but not for the TimeBank. Our Coffee morning, this month was a bring and buy, which was enjoyed by many. Exchanges added up to 218 hours in just this month. This included tasks such as Carpet laying, Companionship. D.I.Y, gardening, giving a lift, Housework, IT skills, Mindfulness, Trip to recycle centre, Delivering, Tree pruning and Web Design.
We featured an article about our member, Sean Rose, Paralympic Champion, in our Newsletter, promoting his charity ‘Wings for Life’. He was looking forward to taking on the commentary role for Channel 4 at this year’s Winter Paralympics in Korea.
Our donation service was doing well. If our members have items they no longer need but could still be useful, they can donate it to the TimeBank and then it is offered to the other members. This was proving to be a very popular and useful service.
