The Cornish Pirates are delighted to be a ‘Spend’ opportunity for Cornwall Time Credits – with future plans to create ‘Earn’ opportunities through various social, environmental and enjoyable events!
The Time Credits model works simply: people earn Time Credits for time contributed to their community or service. These Time Credits can then be spent on accessing activities across a national network, such as local attractions, training courses or leisure, or gifted to others.
Tempo Time Credits are commissioned by Cornwall Council to work with vulnerable people across the county. Since launching in 2018 already over 350 people have come forward to contribute their time and start earning Time Credits.
Cornish Pirates’ Community Engagement Manager, Sam Teasdale, commented:
It was clear from the initial launch that the programme’s focus is to support and strengthen disconnected communities. Personally, I think it is also clear to see the correlation with Rugby’s core values, teamwork respect and discipline – so to get involved was a no brainer!
Helen Smith, Tempo Time Credits Partnership Manager (South West), added:
It’s been great to partner with the Cornish Pirates to offer our Members access to home games. The project started in Penzance so we have lots of Members in the town within walking distance of the Mennaye Field ground, and with live sport so exhilarating to watch we hope lots of people will take up this offer.
Individuals are invited to ‘spend’ their Time Credits at remaining Cornish Pirates home fixtures this season, which are against Jersey Reds – Sunday 10th March, London Irish – Saturday 30th March, and Yorkshire Carnegie – Sunday 21st April. All three matches kick-off at 2.30pm.
