1Citizens Advice South East Staffordshire (CASES) has celebrated 50 years of service to citizens of Lichfield District by holding a tea party at their newly refurbished offices in Levetts Fields, Lichfield.
The charity's current Chief Executive Sandra Cooper says, ‘From its inception volunteers giving their time freely have been the bedrock on which the service has rested and therefore Volunteers' Week is an entirely suitable time to launch our Birthday Celebrations and thank our volunteers for all they do.’
The Mayor of Lichfield, Cllr Mrs Deborah Baker was there to share the fun. She remarked ‘the building looks fantastic now, it's so fresh and very welcoming and I think it'll be a lovely place for people coming to seek advice’.
The event marks the start of a series of celebrations. In addition to the founding of Lichfield District CAB 50 years ago, Tamworth CAB was founded 45 years ago and the national movement is celebrating its 80th Anniversary in September.
Sandra Cooper remarked, ‘We want to mark this milestone year and, as such, we are launching our Anniversary Appeal, aiming to raise £50,000 which will all go to support the valuable work we continue to do across Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough. We are grateful to South Staffs Water who has kicked off our appeal in grand style by giving us a donation of £1,000.’
