We're thrilled that Katie Pickering (a CAP Debt Help Caseworker) was selected as a finalist for Debt Counsellor of the year at the Credit Today Awards 2013. Here's some of the great things clients and colleagues had to say about her:

'Katie personifies CAP's desire to care for clients as whole people and not just numbers.

Wounded soldier to complete sponsored swim for CAP

Corporal Phill Taber of the Royal Engineers received gunshot wounds to both legs in 2010 whilst serving in Afghanistan. Since then he has had to over come numerous operations and undertaken hours of rehabilitation, to regain the reasonable use of his legs. When Phill contacted us to share his plans to raise money for CAP, we were inspired by his determination.

'This year, after being inspired by the valuable work carried out by CAP, I am going to try and swim a mile in the Great North Swim. I will only be using my arms when in the water due to my injuries, making this an even bigger challenge.' – Phill 

If you would like to sponsor Phill, visit his JustGiving page.

So today, in front of a crowd of finance industry professionals and MPs at Westminster, we explained (with the help of two fantastic clients - pictured,left) the kind of poverty that's out there - and what the church is doing to tackle it.
