Our official launch on Friday was a great success! We had at least 60 people at the Community Centre from all walks of life, ages and backgrounds. There was a great deal of interest in the project as Maria talked everyone through it and there were several questions at the end. We heard from some early participants about what they could offer and what they would like to receive.
The Coordinator of the successfully established Castlehaven Timebank attended and was able to give us some useful tips and advice about starting up. The Mayor of Camden, Councillor Heather Johnson and Councillor Tulip Siddiq had some very encouraging words of support for us and gave CTC their full support.
At the end of the event we had a large pile of signing up forms and details of people who had expressed an interest in joining and Maria is now working through these eagerly! Our first few time credits were earned on Friday when one participant, Mark Pampel, played the paino beautifully for everyone and a number of participants gave us two hours of their time to help at the event with signing people up and another took photos for us!
We’d like to thank our wonderful team of volunteers and helpers once again for all their help and support on the day. Keep your eyes peeled for some video clips we will be adding soon…
