Chiltern CAB based in Chesham needs your vote!
4:26pm Tuesday 18th October 2011 in Your Bucks
Local people have just seven days left to vote for Chiltern Citizens Advice bureau in the National Westminster Bank Community Force Competition. The top three projects in the area, as voted by the public will win £6,000 and the voting closes on Sunday 23rd October.
Chiltern Citizens Advice will use the money to help furnish an additional interview and training room in their new premises in Townsend Road, Chesham, which opened on 5th October. The Community Force grant aims to support charities and projects that make a difference to the local community.
“We desperately need more votes to be in with a chance of winning” says bureau manager Liz Wright. “We have the potential to help more people now that our premises are bigger and being awarded the grant would mean that we could start to meet the growing demand for our services . We have already helped 4,500 people over the last year and had an impact on 10 per cent of the Chiltern population but we really need everyone’s vote now so that we can continue to make a difference to the community”
