Citizens Advice Watford were honoured to be chosen by Peter Taylor, Watford’s Mayor, to be a recipient of his 2022 Christmas Card appeal, alongside HomeStart Watford. Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, both charities have received a fantastic £5,250.

Amidst rising hardship and poverty, Citizens Advice Watford is on the front-line giving vital support to the community. In November alone, 751 people were given help and advice with problems they were facing.

Emma Burgham, Chief Officer, said:

“We are immensely grateful to the Mayor for choosing us to be a beneficiary of his Christmas card appeal, and to all the sponsors for their kind generosity. Their support will help us give more people in our community the help they need to find a way forward with the problems they’re facing. For many struggling in the current cost of living crisis, our free, independent advice service is the only place they have to turn to.”
