Thank you to everyone for joining and supporting CAML’s first Fundraising Week!
We exceeded the £1,000 Fundraising Week fundraising target which is brilliant and we welcomed new friends and supporters to the CAML family.
Citizens Advice Merton and Lambeth (CAML) is one of the largest and busiest advice charities in London. The demand for our services and support has always been high. The pandemic, unfortunately, has resulted in thousands more seeking our support (for some services, demand from individuals and families in need has risen 300%). Although COVID restrictions are relaxing, the demand for advice support is still rising and for many clients the impact will last for years.
Few realise Citizens Advice organisations are charities. Our first Fundraising Week had the dual aim of raising awareness of our work and hopefully donations to help us manage the continuing surge in demand for our support. In the words of one of our clients “The support from my adviser and a colleague was great. I was very stressed and they also helped calm my anxiety around the issues.”
If you are interested in receiving information about CAML, our services and how to support us please do not hesitate to contact Simona at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the charity and our clients, thank you again.
