Mid Norfolk Citizens Advice Bureau

What we do

The Citizens Advice service helps people resolve their problems.  As the UK's largest advice provider we are equipped to deal with any issue, from anyone, spanning debt and employment to consumer and housing plus everything in between.  In the last year alone, the Citizens Advice service helped 2.1 million people with 6.6 million problems.  But we're not just here in times of crisis - we also use clients’ stories anonymously to campaign for policy changes that benefit the population as a whole.  Mid Norfolk CAB offers free, confidential advice sessions in Briston and Sheringham.  These are particularly useful for people who would otherwise be unable to access bureau services. Venue details below:

Briston Salvation Army Hall (opposite the Co-op)
1st Thursday of every month
10.00am – 1.00pm

YESU Centre (opposite amusements)
2nd and 4th Thursday of every month

We are also able to offer specialist debt advice at each venue.

This is the third year this event has taken place. 128 people took part, including some serious runners. Well done all of you and many thanks to your sponsors.

A big thank you to Blyth & Wright for sponsoring the prizes and for Hi-Bar Mobile Bar for organising the event. Thanks also have to go to the Carnival volunteers who stewarded and registered the entrants and to Ben Sewell, our first aider.

The fastest professional (wearing running gear) was Charlotte Neale who came in at 43 minutes.

The fastest non-professionals (walkers) were Karen and Mike Coleman at 1 hr 42 mins

We have some special mentions….

Leon Egmore (Manager at Sheringham Tesco) who took 2 hours to walk the course last year and this year, having shed more than 3 stone in weight, ran round in 50 mins. Well done Leon.

Amy Covell who came a close second in the most sponsored category, for Lewy Body Dementia. Well done Amy.

Margaret and David Bickford, who missed a signpost arrow and wandered into the Incleborough Caravan site and gained another 5 to add to their sponsorship for MS Society North Norfolk Group.

East Coast Warriors, Roughton Under 5s Playgroup, Community Work in Kenya, British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK, Salthouse Church, Sheringham & Beeston Regis Scouts, collectively raising a total of 1,976.42.
