The photos are back!

Back on 28th January we took a magical evening to celebrate the wonderful contribution of our most active Timebankers and Volunteers. We were lucky to be able to use the beautiful Proud Galleries in Camden Stables Market as the venue, which added a dash of glamour to the occasion. Massive thank yous to all manner of local businesses too from Oscars Den to the Flower Gallery for donating decorations, prizes and entertainment and making the night go with a real bang. There was live Irish music, comedy and plenty of food and drink. But most importantly there was YOU! Without your enthusiasm, creativity and commitment, we simply could not do what we do.

Well done everyone!

The event was put on in association with fellow Camden organisations – Castlehaven Community Association and Origins Timebank – and it was so lovely working together and being able to meet so many inspiring volunteers helping out all across the borough. A few words of thanks were said by all before the real action got underway!

Over 150 people were there and the Mayor of Camden presented certificates to those volunteers and timebankers who have clocked up impressive numbers of time credits or who have really gone over and above in other ways and rarely ask for anything in return.

See if you can spot yourself! If you have trouble viewing them, why not pop into our IT drop in on Mondays or Wednesday 2-4pm. Or bring a USB memory stick and we can download the orginals for you to take and get printed out.

We also now have the official certificates. So if you were there on the night, you should have a certificate to commemorate your attendance and to thank you for your brilliant involvement in your community. Pop in to the Abbey Community Centre and talk to Laura to pick yours up.

A brilliant night all in all, full of music, dancing and laughter. We hope to do another one soon.

And thank you!

Dancing the night away!
