Once again we were pleased for the support of Cllr Janet Patrick who invited us along to her open garden during last weekends Beeston Garden Trail. Thankfully, after a wet Saturday the sun shone for us on the final day and we were able to speak with visitor to the garden about the work of Citizens Advice and our many projects.
It was particularly useful in launching Scams Awareness Week, 10th – 14th June. Janet’s garden is a particular gem and always a draw for visitors during the Garden Trail, especially with tea, coffee, live music and cakes. Janet, who is an active member of our Trustee Board, was once again kind enough to donate a proportion of the proceeds to our charity.
Local Citizens Advice are independent charities who are responsible for raising there own funds. Last year we helped over 7,000 people in Broxtowe with their problems.
