BAKE OFF COMES TO PORTSMOUTH TO RAISE FUNDS FOR ADVICE SERVICES

Every year Advice Portsmouth helps over 14,000 people who live in the City with free advice on welfare benefit, debt, housing, employment, and family and consumer issues. Many people walk into the Centre, based on Kingston Crescent, with issues on Personal Independence Payments, Employment Support Allowance and other financial matters.

MP Stephen Morgan came to the Centre yesterday to support the team who took part in the Great Legal Bake to raise funds to provide people with budgeting tools and for the hardship fund.  The cake competition was judged by Stephen and the winner was 11 year old Lucy Webber who baked delicious popping candy cupcakes.

Acting Manager Annette Groves said, “We were delighted Stephen was able to join us and judge the Bake Off and we would like to thank him for the interest and knowledge he showed in the problems that people in the city face.”

Stephen Morgan MP said “It’s essential that the people of Portsmouth have access to good quality advice and Advice Portsmouth are doing a great job at providing this. I’ve been hugely impressed with the work that they do – it was great to visit the team yesterday and see for myself the hard work they put in to providing such an important service.”

The Team managed to raise over £100 through their bake sale and online donations. If you believe that this is a cause that you would like to contribute to, then please visit https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/GreatLegalBake2018 to make a donation.
