Sponsored walk to raise funds for Citizens Advice Eastbourne
On Monday 12th June 2017, 40 people took part in a sponsored walk to raise funds for Citizens Advice Eastbourne. The walkers completed a 10km route and raised over £1,000 for the local charity. Teams from local legal firms took part including Mayo Wynne Baxter, Gaby Hardwicke, So Legal, Lawson Lewis Blakers and Stephen Rimmer. BHT Eastbourne Advice and a team of CAB volunteers also took part. The walkers were set off by District Judge Robinson.
Manager, Alan Bruzon said “We would like to thank everyone who took part in this event and thanks to London Legal Trust for helping us organise it. Every pound raised will enable us to help more people and make sure our service remains free to all who need it”.
Citizens Advice Eastbourne are proud to be supported by the London Legal Support Trust in organising this sponsored walk and delighted to see many local law firms taking part.
Not many people realise that Citizens Advice Eastbourne is an independent, local charity responsible for raising its own funds. Sponsorship raised from this walk is desperately needed to help maintain our vital advice service for everyone in the area, but especially the most vulnerable. Helping clients overcome their problems such as those related to debt, welfare benefits, housing, employment and relationship issues.
Every year we give advice and information to over 3,500 people.
Your sponsorship really will make a difference - every £1 invested in Citizens Advice Eastbourne generates £30 in return. More than half of that goes direct to the client.
Our team of trained volunteers are dedicated to helping every person that needs us. Please help us to continue providing this much needed service by sponsoring CAB team today.
