Darren’s story

I'm running in the 2020 London Marathon, raising money for the wonderful work of Christians Against Poverty (CAP). You can find out more about CAP at www.capuk.org

You may know that I am a debt coach for CAP, running the Liskeard and Looe debt centre. We opened in April 2019 and have already helped people of all ages, with varied life experiences and differing levels of debt. Some clients have struggled with addictions, others with domestic violence, relationship breakdown or serious illness. Some are working on zero hours contracts, whilst others have retired or been widowed and just can't make ends meet.

We don't pay off people's debt, we don't charge for our work and we don't discriminate as to who we help. We simply help people take control of their situation. We care for people, take time to understand their situation and then recommend the best way to become and remain debt free as quickly as possible.

Your donation will help us do this life-giving work - making a real difference to the lives of real people, giving them a hope and a confidence for the future.

I've never run a marathon before, my previous best was two half marathons six years ago. Prior to knowing I'd been successful in getting a place, I hadn't run at all for six months, due to a badly twisted ankle sustained on a parkrun! Your sponsorship will give me an extra motivation to train properly and get around the course next April. I really appreciate your wonderful support.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

About Us

Several Liskeard & Looe churches are working in partnership and have launched a Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Debt Centre. Their work serves the PL13 & PL14 post code areas of Cornwall – that is Liskeard, Looe and the surrounding areas. St Martin’s PCC (Liskeard), the South East Cornwall Methodist Circuit, Greenbank Community Church (Liskeard) and Light & Life Free Methodist Church (Liskeard) & Grace Community Church (Morval) all support this vital work.

CAP is a much-needed Christian mission designed to help those in poverty who are trapped with debt that they cannot afford to repay, whilst spreading the good news.

How you can help

In a typical CAP working week, someone becomes debt free every 45 minutes; someone chooses to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ every 2 hours. Wouldn’t you want to be part of that?

You can support your local CAP debt centre by:

Becoming part of the support team

Contact us to find out how you can be involved. There are many roles including befriending, helping with shopping, organising events, offering blessings, etc. You can be involved as little or as much as you like.

Becoming a Life Changer - Help Fund Us

We need money in order to provide this free service. Wages, expenses, resources, training, postage, phone calls, printing and blessings cost money. Despite volunteer support and grant funding from the partner churches, we still need to find enough money to continue this valuable mission. If you could commit to regular financial giving, you would be actively and profoundly changing the lives of the poor. Contact us to find out more - or donate as a one off via this site.

Praying for our service and our clients

We would love you to stand with us and pray for our clients and our ministry. Contact our local CAP centre to be added to the regular prayer newsletter to receive specific prayer requests by email. Prayer works!

Promoting our service

Please tell anyone who can benefit from CAP’s help to call 01274 761911 or visit www.capuk.org for more information

How Our Service works

  1. People seeking help call the bookings team at CAP on 01274 761911
  2. An appointment will be made for the local debt centre manager to visit the client in their home. A befriender attends with the centre manager.
  3. After the service has been explained, details about income and expenditure are gathered and then a recommended route out of debt will be discussed and agreed.
  4. If the client wishes to continue, CAP will support the client every step of the way.
  5. Once the client has agreed to work with CAP, they no longer have to talk with any of their creditors – the burden is lifted almost immediately.

CAP helps anyone, regardless of their beliefs or life choices.

We also periodically offer CAP Money courses - helping people to understand their finances, learn budgeting skills and look for ways to make the most of what they have got. These courses are aimed at anyone - we can all do more with what we have and the skills you can learn can help you to achieve your goals.

Registered Charity Number: 1130720.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
