An exciting year ahead!Phil Pyatt
A belated Happy New Year to everyone and a warm welcome to 2020! This is an exciting year for TimeBank as it’s also our 20th anniversary and a fantastic achievement for everyone who has been involved in TimeBank since it started. So, a big thank you to all our current and previous staff, trustees, funders and an even bigger thank you to our volunteers and beneficiaries who are the heartbeat of the charity.
As it’s our 20th anniversary we hope to announce a range of exciting activities and promotions to celebrate over the next 12 months, and the first thing I’m excited to announce is the launch of our new website. Our last website was nine years old so we hope the new one will be just as successful. The best thing to do with any new website is to check it out but some of the new features include:
- Easier to navigate and see our current and past projects and which projects need volunteers
- An improved Employee Volunteering section with easy to access to information about our employee volunteering days, as well as other corporate projects including Local Connections and how to get involved in our mentoring projects
- Better donation capability so you can give a one-off or monthly donation or get involved in your own fundraising event
- An updated news and blog section
Watch this space for more announcements including:
TimeBank Voices – the launch later in the year in London and Birmingham of our TimeBank Voices project which will bring some of the experiences of our volunteers and beneficiaries to life through oral history recordings. You can hear a preview of some of these recordings on the new website right now!
So once again I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and to watch this space and here’s to a successful 2020.
