An online silent auction to raise funds for Bury St Edmunds Citizens Advice has been set up by Bury Abbey Rotary Club.
Bury Abbey Rotary Club, an active fundraising group, is seeking auction lots donations from local businesses and members of the public for their auction which goes live at the start of April.
Citizens Advice provides free advice on money, housing, benefits and tax credits and employment.
President of the Bury Abbey Rotary Club, Stuart Hughes said: “The demand for the services provided by our local Citizens Advice Bureaus is ever increasing.
“The erosion of Legal Aid, for legal services, coupled with the financial pressure exacerbated by the pandemic has led to increased reliance on the Citizen Advice Bureau for help with advice on debt, redundancy, food and energy poverty.
