Thousand Hours began in Ashford in October 2016 when we decided to pledge a thousand hours of our time to bringing life to Ashford. Whether through personal volunteering in our own neighbourhoods- picking up litter, baking cakes for neighbours, etc. or collectively by putting on community events throughout the month, we wanted to make an impact on the town that we love by spreading acts of kindness, and bringing life in any way that we could.
Last year, we managed to hit 1856 hours! It was a fantastic month building relationships and bringing life to the neighbourhoods around us, and we loved every minute!
This year, Thousand Hours will be bigger and better as we continue to love and look after our community by bringing a kindness revolution to our town. We are working with schools and businesses around Ashford as well as impacting the small communities in our own areas and there are plenty of ways for you to get involved!
For all the information, including opportunities to get involved with Thousand Hours 2017 and log your hours – or just get excited with us! Please go to the Thousand Hours Website: www.thousandhours.org
We can’t wait to see you and hear your stories!
