A church-based charity in Ripley has celebrated two years of rescuing local people from personal debt.
Members of All Saints Church partnered with UK debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) in October 2012 to open a local branch.
The team have since helped numerous families and individuals by offering a free, face-to-face and caring service.
Centre manager Bethan Ward said: “We have been in a lot of homes during these two years and learned about some very sad situations.
“However, we’ve also seen that however terrible something appears, there is always a solution. CAP is really thorough, taking someone step by step to becoming debt free.”
There will be special service at All Saints on Sunday, November 2, at 10am to hear about the work of CAP.
