Lots on offer at charity auction

TEA at Westminster with Worcester MP Robin Walker and a stunning sailing trip are just two of the pledges set to go under the hammer at a charity’s Auction of Promises on Saturday.

Worcester Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is staging its first major fund-raiser at St Helen’s Church on Fish Street to raise funds for its free debt counselling service.

Auctioneer Andrew Grant will be taking bids for more than 50 promises, including an offer from Mr Walker of tea for four people at Westminster before attending a debate in the House of Commons.

Other promises include a flight in a Cessna aircraft, weekend breaks around the country, a sailing trip in the Solent as well as tickets to see Dirty Dancing at the Birmingham Hippodrome and a guided tour of Worcester Cathedral Tower.

Worcester CAP was launched in January with the support of All Saints Church on Deansway and is part of the wider national charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP), which has nearly 200 centres across the UK.

CAP helps people and families in financial crisis through a combination of budgeting advice, creditor liaison and personal support throughout the time it takes them to become debt-free.

The auction evening starts at 6.30pm with tickets £3 on the door.

For more information on Worcester CAP call the national freephone number on 0800 3280006 or visit capuk.org/gethelp
