Absolutely fantastic news from CCIA partners Spice, who have just won the prestigious prize for “Contribution to the Sector” at the 3rd Sector Care Awards in London. By happy coincidence, this came on the same day that Spice released an independently conducted report into the impact of their Time Credit currency on individuals, communities and services.
You can read some of the incredible statistics from the study here, as well as download an executive summary or full version.
The 3rd Sector Awards, now in their 10th year, recognises talent, innovation and success in charities and non-for-profit organisations of all sizes. Congratulations to Spice for showing the potential of complementary currencies to build strong, resilient and locally-driven communities!
Spice Time Credits are one of six currencies participating in the EU-funded Community Currencies in Action(CCIA), the largest ever trans-national project looking at the design, implementation and evaluation of community currencies across North Western Europe.
