THE PEOPLE BEHIND
I want to transform people's perception around generosity and the importance of reciprocity, meaning it is as important to receive as it is to give. I have been raised with the understanding that receiving is a gift of connection and inclusion. I strongly welcome everyone to get involved in our treasure that is the Wellington Timebank if you are not already an individual or organisational member. Encourage your friends, family, neighbours and organisations to be part of a movement for good
I have been a part of the timebank for over 6years. One of the biggest motivations for being a part of timebank is because it gave me the luxury to meet like minded people who wanted to build a community around them that they truly believe can sustain based on kindness and sharing of resources. Waste minimisation and diversion is my area of expertise and i can help set up a resource recovery business however at the same time can also cook some amazing indian food and get your home all tidied up and some other bits and bobs.I decided to join the steering committee as i felt i could not help keep the place ticking and cover for the co-ordinator but be someone who can get the ship sailing forward.
Bernadette has been a long time Timebank member and a Steering Committee member since 2019. One of her favourite trades was a Kyaking trade with Lainey, a fellow Timebanker and ex-steering committee member! They spent the day paddling out in the harbour. Bernadette provides great support to the Wellington Timebank through her keen attitude and community mindedness.
