We have a few tickets available for our Spring Charity event to be held at Highcliffe Castle on March 30th.
Come and join us for a fun evening with a quiz, bingo, raffle, buffet and drinks to help us raise funds for Citizens Advice New Forest.
Both Jacque and Steve are volunteers for Citizens Advice New Forest, and therefore see at first hand the wonderful work they do to support and advice the local community. As an independent, local charity they can only offer its indispensable services because of grants, sponsorship and donations, and through the unstinting work of its 124 volunteers. The charity provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities.
Did you know that Citizens Advice New Forest also employs a Macmillan Support Worker? She helps clients in the same way as the Citizen Advice, but the clients all have a cancer diagnosis and the help given is not only for them, but just as importantly, for their families. If a client with a cancer diagnosis has a mortgage and needs long term treatment and cannot work because of this, she will help maximise their income with benefits and grants, and liaise with mortgage companies to sort out a solution for them. For older clients, she will ensure they are receiving Attendance Allowance and any eligible benefits and advice with care costs. She also provides bereavement support and frequently assists with housing issues. She will visit clients at home and works closely with Oakhaven Hospice and local GP’s.
If you would like to reserve a place at this event or make a donation, then contact Jacque Aitken on Jacque@simpkinsand.co.uk or 01425 275555. We ask that you kindly donate £5 minimum for each ticket. All funds raised will go directly to the charity.
*Any donations for raffle prizes will be very gratefully received. Please contact Jacque as above.
