From Cllr Paul Hayes

“This new venture sounds very exciting, and will build upon the fantastic community spirit already evident throughout West Cork. I have asked colleagues on the Social Inclusion Strategic Policy Committee of Cork County Council to explore ways that we can best support this initiative, and I’m hoping that representatives from hOur Timebank will be able to address a meeting of the council in the weeks ahead to elaborate on their plans. I also believe this initiate will assist in combating issues especially affecting rural areas such as mental health and loneiness by bringing people together and giving them a sense of self worth.”
