First Point has been hosting and developing a new Basingstoke Timebank project which we have been delivering and growing for the past few months.
Now that we have fine-tuned the model we are ready to go ahead with a public launch to get the word out there that we are up and running and looking for members!
We would therefore like to invite you to our official launch at The Anvil, January 30th 2019 12noon-3pm
The concept of Time banking is simple, for every hour participants ‘deposit’ in a timebank, by giving practical help and support to others, they can ‘withdraw’ equivalent support in time when they themselves are in need. In each case the participant decides what they can offer.
It does not require the same level of commitment as regular volunteering so is a flexible way for people to come together to enrich a community. The whole project works on the principle of reciprocity and is open to organisations as well as individuals. If you would like more information or think you might like to join the Timebank then please come along to the Anvil on the 30th or contact us on:
