Group to promote citizens advice

Volunteers are being sought for a group aimed at raising funds for Citizens Advice, Eastwood.

The Friends of Citizen Advice Broxtowe group will help to promote the service, which also has bases in Stapleford and Beeston.

Each year the three bureaus help residents deal with more than 32,000 issues and advice is given by trained volunteers, backed up by qualified staff.

But the service is not fully funded by government – it is an independent charity and has to raise its own funds.

The service is looking for 10 to 12 volunteers before the first meeting of the Friends group in September.

Call 0115 917 3800 or email manager@beeston.cabnet.org.uk for more details.
