CAB volunteers are celebrated
CITIZENS Advice Charnwood has been celebrating its volunteers who dedicate their time to solving people’s problems and making a difference to their lives.
The 50 volunteers at Citizens Advice Charnwood give up a total of 300 hours each week and last year helped nearly 5,000 local people with over 11,000 problems.
The charity’s volunteers have played a crucial role ensuring people in Charnwood get the advice and support they need to get on with their lives.
Ian Dennis, chief officer at Citizens Advice Charnwood, said: “Our volunteers make a huge difference to people’s lives.
“They give up their free time to help people in their community, who may be going through problems, to get back on their feet.
“Volunteering is for everybody and it brings its own rewards. It’s a great way to meet people and learn skills.
“If you’d like to help people in our area and can spare a few hours, we’d love to hear from you.”
