Cllr Chris Long gave the charity £1,000 towards their facility.

The service, which has boasted a 100 per cent client satisfaction rate, aims which aims to give advice to people who would find it difficult to access the service due to disability, incapacity or infirmity

Manager at CAB Anne Bamfield, said: “CAB is often approached by clients with cancer and other terminal illness or their carers who are seeking help with applications for various living allowances.

“The home visiting service is a much-needed lifeline to those who would find it difficult to seek advice in other ways as a proportion of it is lengthy form filling.”

Cllr Long said: “This is not a particularly well publicised service yet it is important. Like all services these days they have to be funded and during these austere times that funding is not easy to obtain.”
