Do you like the idea of volunteering but just do not have the time to make a regular commitment? Would you be happy to use your skills to benefit others in the community, at a time that suits you?
If your answer is yes, then why not volunteer as a member of the Southend or Castle Point Timebanks.
It is open to anyone as you simply offer to help local people with what they need when they need it, from dog walking to shopping, gardening to befriending . . . and much, much more besides. We all have something to offer!
It is perfect for anyone who would like to help others and is also ideal for anyone who does not have a lot of spare time or can not volunteer at regular times.
You choose what you can help with and when you can do it . . . just one hour can make a difference to someone else.
And there is more . . . in return for every hour you give, you earn credits that you can use to get help from other members of the timebank. Or you can donate your hours to a community pot for use by someone who needs help but can not give anything back at the moment.
Its flexible and a great way to meet people, help others and build a better community. There are so many different ways you could lend a hand - there really is something for everyone.
Help us to make a difference - one hour at a time!
