Volunteers at Fleetwood’s Citizens’ Advice Service have been given a special thank you party.

The office, on Poulton Road, staged the event to thank its 14 helpers as part of National Volunteers Week.

Emma Sylvester, debt case worker at the Poulton Road office, said: “Without our volunteers we wouldn’t be able to even open the door - and we need them more than ever.

“The enquiries about changes to benefits, like the Disability Living Allowance, have doubled in the past two months.

“People are really worried about the changes.”
