Citizens Advice Cupcake makes its debut in Dartmouth
If you’re wondering what a Citizen Advice cupcake tastes like then visit the Dartmouth kiosk on Wednesday 20th June because it’s making its debut. The cupcake was designed and made by one of the charity’s volunteers, Rosemarie Jacobs. After working in catering management for many years she became interested in volunteering for Citizens Advice and regularly bakes and makes cakes for Citizens Advice fund raising events. The idea for the cupcake – which is blueberry and lemon with a lemon frosting top – came after discussions for Citizens Advice 80th anniversary events planned for 2019. The charity who normally advises local residents on more weighty problems thought it needed a signature cake.
Janie Moor CEO of Citizens Advice South Hams says, “Some of the advice problems we deal with are difficult and distressing so thoughts of cake are always welcome. If the new Citizens Advice cupcake takes off it may figure in our celebrations next year. We’re thinking of asking the public to hold coffee mornings and afternoon tea events to help us raise money, similar to Macmillan Cancer. If anyone is interested in helping us raise funds we’d love to hear from them. Contact us on Friends@southhamscab.org.uk . A lot of people don’t realise that we’re a local independent charity reliant on local funding, so we need the help and backing of the local community”
Any Dartmouth resident needing advice services from Citizens Advice can come into the Dartmouth clinic on Tuesday mornings between 9.30 – 12.30 when Citizens Advice staff and volunteers are there to help or visit southhamscab.org.uk or ring the adviceline on 03 444 111 444
