HOUR Manchester

24 May, 2019 - 10:00 to 14:00

HOUR Manchester is an exciting new approach to bring together people across Manchester with an interest in mutual support, *Timebanking and community economies.

* Timebanking is a way of linking local people and organisations who can share their time and skills in a way where everyone is valued equally. Within a Timebanking model, no one is rich and no one is poor as we all have 24 hours each day and an hour is equally as valuable to everyone. 1 hour in = 1 hour back!
