THE chief executive of Barnsley Citizen's Advice Bureau has thanked the service's volunteers for putting in hundreds of hours to help those in need.

Barnsley CAB has 35 volunteers who collectively contribute the equivalent in financial terms of more than £250,000 a year.

Pat Heath said the volunteers are an indispensable part of the service, particularly with the bureau seeing an increase in calls since benefit and welfare reforms came into effect.

"I'm hugely grateful to all of the fantastic people in our bureau who give up their time to help us deliver the advice to our clients which, in the face of such a tough pressure on people's personal finances, is more vital than ever," he said.
