Today Matt, John and a team from CAP's Head Office are headed down to the 2014 Charity Times Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony in London. Christians Against Poverty has been shortlisted to receive two awards this year and tonight we will find out who has won.
The first award we are shortlisted for is ‘Charity of the Year: with an income of £5million - £10million’. This is in recognition of our efforts to expand our debt help service, which now reaches over 260 local communities across the UK, and for the launch of our new initiative CAP Job Clubs (now with over 90 clubs). It also acknowledges our continued efforts to make all our processes as efficient as possible helping us to deliver the best service to those with the very least.
The second award we are shortlisted to receive is ‘Fundraising Team of Year’, in response to our campaign sponsoring Big Church Day Out last year. Through this campaign 1,000 people become Life Changers through our regular giving programme. It was already a huge encouragement to see so many people committed to support our work to break the burden of debt and poverty, so to have the fundraising campaign acknowledged is simply an added bonus!
We are looking forward to hearing the results tonight!
