Imagine a bank where the currency is not based on monetary value but is full to the brim with time, with care and with community spirit. Now imagine a place and a time where the bank transforms the way a community works together. Where need is replaced by giving. Where accountability is replaced by trust. Imagine a bank where anyone can make a withdrawal – and replace it with something of them-selves, but where a measurement of their level of giving is non-existent. Imagine a bank that changes the world. And makes people smile and realise that what they can offer their community – no matter how small - is as precious as anyone else. Where being ‘rich’ is redefined. Where everyone and ANYONE can remember they have a wonderful life... December 1st. Stockton-on-Tees. This bank will open. For 24 days. ‘No-one ever became poor by giving’. Anne Frank

Scotland Strathclyde Glasgow Donate For Dignity  Provision of Essential Items Please consider donating something that you think would be particularly useful so we can make up dignity kits for the women that we come into contact with. It can be anything you think would be useful, but current demands centre round the following: • Nappies (all sizes and ages…reusable wraps would be amazing) • Sanitary towels • Tooth brush/tooth paste • Baby toys/clothes • Radios (so many women here need a distraction from intrusive traumatic thoughts and long days with nothing to do really doesn’t help) • Socks • Underwear • Gloves

All of the women have been living in the UK for a number of years and most of them are awaiting final decisions on their cases which have been significantly delayed.
