Fair Shares – What’s a Community Time Bank?
How you can be part of it?
Monday 10th October 2016
The Friendship Cafe, Chequers Bridge, Painswick Road,
Gloucester GL4 6PR
What are time banks and how do they fit into our world of community building and opportunity? The first “time bank” was started by Fair Shares in the UK around 18 years ago. Gloucestershire is part of that initiative and has always been at the forefront of the timebanking movement.
Starting at 7pm on Monday 10th October, Gloucester based Fair Shares Time Broker Reyaz Limalia is guest speaker at the next Spirit of Peace community Bring & Share Supper at The Friendship Cafe, Chequers Bridge on Painswick Road, Gloucester GL4 6PR
Reyaz says, “Timebanking is a tool that brings people together. They exchange their skills and experiences helping to build on the strengths of the community. Please come along and find out how we have developed timebanking in Gloucestershire and how it’s affected the lives of those involved. We will also have time for questions and discussions”.
The evening is organised by UK registered charity Spirit of Peace in partnership with the Friendship Cafe Community.
Contributions of vegetarian and alcohol free food and drink for the supper are much appreciated. Everyone is welcome.
Admission is free but donations supporting the ongoing local and international peace work of Spirit of Peace are appreciated.
