Advice organisation thanks its “wonderful volunteers”

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

An advice organisation in the Moorlands is saying thank you to all its “wonderful” volunteers as the nation celebrates National Volunteers Week. The annual celebration of volunteers began on Monday (June 1) and will run through until Sunday, June 7. It has given Citizens Advice Cheadle, and many other organisations across the country, the perfect opportunity to thank volunteers for the “exceptional contribution” they have made during the past year.

An advice organisation in the Moorlands is saying thank you to all its “wonderful” volunteers as the nation celebrates National Volunteers Week.

The annual celebration of volunteers began on Monday (June 1) and will run through until Sunday, June 7.

It has given Citizens Advice Cheadle, and many other organisations across the country, the perfect opportunity to thank volunteers for the “exceptional contribution” they have made during the past year.

Chief Officer, Julie Billingham said: “Our volunteers are amazing people.

They come from all walks of life and take on many and varied roles such as advisors, administrators, receptionists and digital assessors, to name but a few.

Throughout the year our volunteers contribute their time and energy helping keep our vital service running and making a huge difference to the lives of Cheadle residents.”

The organisation has continued giving advice and information throughout the coronavirus pandemic thanks to the tireless dedication of its staff and volunteers.

The team quickly rallied to ensure as many people as possible could be helped over the phone, via email or via text.

Julie added: “Here at Citizens Advice Cheadle we have been working exceptionally hard during the lockdown to maintain a service to the local community.

We have helped 350 clients during the lockdown period, 70 more than the same period last year by increasing our participation in our existing helplines, thanks to the generous funding given to us by the Staffordshire Community Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund.

Next week we will be expanding our service by introducing a local debt telephone service where clients from the Staffordshire Moorlands area can phone and text us for help with any financial difficulties they are experiencing.”

With the introduction of the new service, Citizens Advice Cheadle are on the look out for additional volunteers.

Julie said: “We are now looking for new volunteers to help us continue this programme of expansion to help more clients during this difficult time.

It is thanks to our volunteers who give their time freely that we are able to offer such a comprehensive service.

Whether volunteers have been able to continue in their role recently, or have paused their volunteering, their support throughout the year has been truly invaluable.

I cannot thank them enough for their continued dedication.

We really couldn’t do it without them.”
