At their AGM the Friends of Crowborough CAB handed over a cheque for £3,000 to Wealden Citizens Advice to support their work helping those in financial difficulty in Crowborough.
Kay Birch, Chief Executive of the service said:
We are incredibly grateful to the Friends of Crowborough for their fundraising efforts , as we are to the Town, District and Parish Councils who fund us – we simply could not provide all the help we do without their support.
2014/15 was a busy year for Crowborough CAB. The bureau helped 1,349 clients with 7,078 issues. The team of dedicated volunteers, supported by a small and expert paid staff, helped clients achieve nearly £1m in improved financial outcomes, such as additional benefits and tax credits.
