Local and successful business CountyClean Group has kindly donated £450 to assist in Citizens Advice Eastbourne’s work and their first charity dinner on 2nd November at a well-known and established local Italian restaurant.
The sold out event will provide around 80 professionals and business leaders in the UK’s sunniest place an opportunity for quality networking whilst enjoying a Mediterranean feast and participating in fundraising activities to further support Eastbourne’s Citizens Advice branch.
“We are delighted to receive support from CountyClean Environmental Services for our first fundraising dinner. It is always nice to know that local business see the value in our work. Not many people realise that Citizens Advice Eastbourne is a local charity, reliant on the support of our local community. The generous sponsorship provided by CountyClean Environmental Services will ensure the event is a real success.” Alan Bruzon, Chief Executive Citizens Advice Eastbourne
The national Citizens Advice Bureau charity has been run mostly by volunteers since 1939 and now has over 2,000 outlets throughout the UK that deal with millions of advice requests year on year. Each branch provides free impartial and fully confidential guidance to thousands of people each year who find themselves in difficult situations or who just need some advice on personal matters with money, housing, consumer rights, tax or employment. As a charity, Citizens Advice Eastbourne relies on around 70 volunteer staff and financial contributions from local councils, organisations and the Big Lottery Fund so that it may continue to offer free services and run campaigns to improve policies and practices that affect people’s lives.
As a proud business from Eastbourne, CountyClean Group’s MD Mike Walker adds, “We fully support and appreciate the work that Citizens Advice Eastbourne do for local individuals from all walks of life and wish to thank the charity’s volunteers who continue providing guidance and support to those who need it most.“
