Charity Registration No. 1097217

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Thursday 3rd May I will be setting out to walk from Bracknell to Bradford to raise money for Christians Against Poverty. 

I also want to raise awareness that, for anyone facing the hopelessness and despair brought on my debt, there is always hope and a solution.

After the failure of my business a few years ago, I faced unemployment and mounting debts.  I sank into a deep depression and didn't think I would ever be able to escape it.

Working with CAP and its Bracknell Centre over the last couple of years, I am now almost debt free and am enjoying a whole new outlook on life.  I have called my walk The Hope Challenge because, whilst I might not have found faith, I have found hope.

Please give what you can and sponsor me.  Your giving will enable CAP to reach more and more people across the country who are suffering the effects of debt as I was and who need to find the hope I now have. 

I will be hosted by a number of CAP Centres as I make my way North (thank you to all of you) finishing at CAP's Head Office in Bradford sometime on the 22nd May.  I shall keep you updated on my progress.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thanks.
