Daventry Volunteer Centre - Daventry District Time Bank
Award Winners

The Northamptonshire Community Foundation’s Award Ceremony took place on 25th September. Twenty six groups from across Kettering, Corby, Daventry and Northampton were up for an award across six categories, Sports and Fitness, Arts, Culture and Heritage, Environmental Impact, Strengthening Communities, Supporting Families and the High Sheriff Initiative Award, sponsored by the University of Northampton. Vice Chancellor Nick Petford, who took part in the judging, said: “I am delighted that The University is the key sponsor of these Awards and of an evening that recognises the efforts of so many organisations and individuals. It shows just what a small amount of funding, coupled with an awful lot of passion and commitment, can do. The work across so many sectors and communities has a massive ripple effect for good. We embrace volunteering at The University of Northampton and our vision is all about ‘transforming lives and inspiring change’ – an aspiration echoed by every one of those nominated.”

Daventry District Time Bank project were delighted to win the “Strengthening Communities” category. The project has been funded by NCF to run a mutual help scheme for local people using the sharing and exchanging of volunteer to help meet local need. Activities include teaching English as a second language, dog walking, DIY, decorating, babysitting, driving and gardening. The project recently achieved 1440 hours of activity generated within the community with 155 volunteers exchanging their skills.
