Nearly 50 staff, volunteers and supporters joined Epsom Citizens Advice on Sunday 14 May to raise vital funds for those at the forefront of the cost-of-living crisis, and went the extra mile by walking a self-guided 5 mile route around Horton County Park or 10 mile route through the Epsom countryside.
Supporters who took part on Sunday included Chris and Horton councillors Bernie Muir and Kieran Persand. Thanks must also go to Epsom and Ewell Rotaries who fielded volunteers to help on the day plus some CAEE staff and volunteers who gave up their Sunday.
The event raised over £2,000. Anyone who would like to walk the route and donate or even just donate, can visit our Just Giving page. All funds raised during Sunday’s event will go directly into supporting frontline services.
Lisa Davis, CEO of CAEE, said:
“We’re so grateful to everyone who rallied together this weekend. Every day our advisers hear from people who are stressed, isolated and frightened as they try to deal with the cost-of-living crisis.
“We’re working flat out to help people find a way forward. But we’re a charity and our services are stretched. All the funds raised by the people of Epsom and Ewell will help us get crisis support for those who need it.”
