There are several volunteering options if you’d like to help the Bristol Pound. We’ll pay travel and subsistence expenses so that you’re not out of pocket, and give you plenty of opportunities to be a part of our ongoing development.
Are you outgoing and good at making and maintaining relationships? If so, you could be a perfect Community Champion! We are recruiting Community Champions to cover all the high street shopping areas of Bristol, so that we can get more local traders to accept Bristol Pounds, and get more local people using the currency.
