CAB celebrate after scooping top award

MOTHERWELL and Wishaw Citizens’ Advice Bureau are celebrating a national first.

The group won the EFQM Committed to Excellence Award from auditing organisation Quality Scotland - and they are the first CAB in Scotland to receive the gong.

The award will be presented at a ceremony in Edinburgh on June 7.

Marie-Claire Cushley, chairwoman of Motherwell and Wishaw CAB, said: “This is a tribute not just to our current staff, volunteers and directors, but to everyone who has worked with the bureau over the years.

“We are not resting on our laurels, however. It is gratifying to have your work recognised, but the people who really matter to us are the local people we are here to serve.

“The ethos of CAB has never been more relevant than it is today.”
