TIME EXCHANGE FUNDING UPDATE

The Time Exchange relies on funding from grants and trusts to run the time bank and drop-in service and unfortunately we haven’t managed to secure any long term funding.

We currently need funding to cover our core running costs to continue to support the local community. We are waiting to hear back on a number of funding applications and if we do not raise much needed funds the Time Exchange will have to close.

This is so frustrating to be in this situation after surviving the uncertainty of the last two years. We will keep you updated on our progress.

Please note that the Time Exchange office will now be closed on Fridays to allow us more time to work on funding applications.

TIME EXCHANGE CROWDFUNDER

The Time Exchange has teamed up with Spacehive to run a crowdfunding campaign and we need your help to share it and gather support!
We are hoping to raise funds to continue running gardening and food growing sessions throughout the summer.
Please share the project, click the link and comment on the Spacehive page. The more shares we get the more likely we will get noticed by funders and help get more donations coming in.
If you could donate anything, however small, that would be amazing too!
