We held a fundraising dinner at La Loconda del Duca on the evening of 2nd November. Around 80 people attended from local businesses with friends and family. The event was organised with help from the Chamber of Commerce.
As well as excellent food and drink there was a raffle, an auction and a silent auction. Prizes came from local businesses and hampers which were put together by the volunteers at the Bureau. Local personalities Mike Reid and Adrian Carter helped host the evening which raised over £6,000.
The money will be used to support the core service which is staffed by a large team of volunteers and helps people with problems such as debt, benefits issues, housing, employment, consumer and immigration. Last year the Bureau helped over 3,500 people.
