Andrew Potter - from October 2012 to February 2016:

It was with great sadness that we learned of the unexpected death of Trustee, Andrew Potter in February 2016.  Andrew was a staunch supporter of our charity and it’s vision and he made a tremendous contribution to the Board with his enthusiasm and knowledge.  At meetings Andrew was consistently helpful, insightful and diplomatic.  He played a key part in the progress of Money Advice Plus and his cheery presence is sorely missed.  



"Money Advice Plus got me out of a big hole. I was depressed. Clearing debts got me out of the mire and helped me go forward, it gave me a way out."

"I was absolutely amazed! I am so grateful for your help with my financial difficulties. I wouldn't have even known about applying for assistance with utility bills and other things without your assistance."

"We've found Money Advice Plus very useful over the past few months. It is very re-assuring to be able to direct our residents to an agency we know will be able to clarify any money concerns. What they've liked the most is that you come to their homes to explain and help. They say it's a much more personal service than working with the Pension Service, and much less daunting."
