Happy birthday to HFCAB from Martin Lewis
Martin Lewis recently presented HFCAB with our National Award from Citizens Advice for Financial Skills for Life. We were especially delighted that the award was presented by Martin Lewis who has lived in the Borough, and is a great supporter of the Citizens Advice Service and is particularly focussed on money matters.
We invited Martin to be our special guest at our recent AGM to help us celebrate our 75th Anniversary and other success but unfortunately he was unable to attend due to filming commitments. He did however send us his apologies through this video message.
Thank you Martin!
