There's been a 24 percent increase in the number of people going to Dorchester and Sherborne Citizens Advice Bureaus but the service is facing impending cut-backs in funding.

After giving advice to nearly 7,000 people in Dorset with the money problems for free, a local charity is asking for a financial helping hand from the public.

There's been a 24 percent increase in the number of people going to Dorchester and Sherborne Citizens Advice Bureaus but the service is facing impending cut-backs in funding.

Bob Kerr from the Bureau says they'll have to scale back the help they offer if they don't find the money.

He told Wessex FM: "We don't want to reduce and cut back if we can't find the funds we're asking for now because the service is a last resort for many people."

The service is asking anyone who is raising money through charity events to consider using the Bureau as their cause.
