Citizens Advice Bath and North East Somerset Bath Christmas Market 2019 chalet

Our charity was very lucky to be awarded a chalet at the Bath Christmas Market on Saturday 7 December 2019 and we made the most of it and the glorious sunshine. We raised a fantastic £632.31, while getting the message out that we are an independent charity. We really appreciate every donation we received and thank those who made them. The funds will go directly into supporting our core service of helping people manage multiple, complex issues, such as debt and benefit issues, employment and housing problems or even immigration concerns, along with many other topics important to people in our district.

We’d like to say a huge “Thank you” to everyone who supported our chalet, including all of the volunteers and staff who baked and made goods, were present at the chalet throughout the day and into the night, and who helped to manage it logistically. Additionally, we’d like to say “Thank you” to the Bath Christmas Market for giving us the opportunity to get in front of so many people.

Bath’s Prior Park College Baines House students very kindly and spectacularly decorated our chalet, helping to make it stand out and be noticed.

Finally, our gratitude goes to the local businesses that donated prizes to our raffle:
