Money on agenda for new course

Herald Express - - Down your Way -

A POP­U­LAR course aimed at help­ing peo­ple cope with the ef­fects of aus­ter­ity is be­ing run in Tor­bay.

Chris­tians Against Poverty in Tor­bay is sup­ported by six churches who are work­ing to­gether to al­le­vi­ate poverty in the bay and help peo­ple man­age their money.

The CAP money course of­fers free ses­sions to help peo­ple in Tor­bay get on top of their house­hold fi­nances.

CAP money coach Cathy Davis, who will be lead­ing the ses­sions, said: “If you know how to save and bud­get ef­fec­tively, it can have a hugely pos­i­tive im­pact on the whole fam­ily.

“With house­holds feel­ing the squeeze on their dis­pos­able in­come, we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times.

“We hope that we can help peo­ple, qui­etly and con­fi­den­tially, take the guess­work out of their sit­u­a­tion so they can plan for the fu­ture, sort out any prob­lems early and come through un­scathed.”

The next course takes place in the Lyming­ton Room of Up­ton Vale Bap­tist Church at 7pm on No­vem­ber 1 and con­tin­ues the fol­low­ing two Thurs­days.
