Kingdom Community Bank Official Opening
Fife Voluntary Action are currently setting up timebanks in the Levenmouth area.
A timebank is a simple concept – it’s all about exchanging favours.
You join the timebank, offering a skill to the bank like dog walking, cleaning, IT expertise, DIY, or whatever it is you feel you can do. As long as it’s something you can do for someone else, it can be almost anything!
The timebank records your willingness to help and informs the other timebank members that your skills are available. Someone in the timebank who needs your skill will then ask to meet up with you so you can walk their dog, put of a shelf for them or whatever it is you’re up for.
The timebank records your effort in terms of time – the number of hours it takes to do it, and you receive “credits” for it. 1 hour = 1 credit.
Join the timebanks in Levenmouth by phoning Sandy MacKenzie on 0800 389 6046 or emailing Sandy@fifevoluntaryaction.org.uk
New Collection Point
We are pleased to announce we have opened a new collection point at the Maxwell Community Centre, Cowdenbeath every Thursday between 11:00 and 13:00.
Please feel free to pop along and have a chat with us!
Our Commitment to Affordable Credit
As your locally owned Community Bank, we are passionate about helping people in Fife. We believe in the deliverance of a Fairer Fife as defined by the Fairer Fife commission, ” a Fife where all residents have the capability to live good lives, makes choices and reach their full potential and where all children are safe, happy and healthy”. We do our bit by offering affordable credit. Our loans are very affordable – we don’t want people to use Wonga, Sunny Loans, Provident or even local loan suppliers like Forth Financial Services Ltd., Loans At Home or even Conduit (our local C.D.F.I.) and we definitely don’t want people going to weekly rent to own companies such as Brighthouse when they can come to us and get a cheaper loan. So we ask you to check out the figures on our loan calculator below, then contact us to apply!
