People gave up something they enjoy for a week to raise awareness of the work of Christians Againast Poverty.

Be it coffee, bread, a pub lunch, a weekly cleaner, cake, chocolate or using their car for a week were just some of the things that members of the congregation at St George’s Church gave up for thier week without.

They put the money that would have been spent into an envelope to help with the running of the charity and together raised more than £700.

Stamford Christians Against Poverty debt centre manager Simon Jary said: “It was great to see the church family engage and identify so openly with our work with the people who are struggling with debt issues. Their generosity will be a great boost to CAP’s vision of growth and drive to significantly reduce poverty all over the UK.”

The debt centre, based in Stamford but serving people in Bourne, The Deepings, Oakham and Oundle, celebrated its 4th anniversary last month. Call 0800 328 0006.
