Story

Please sponsor me as I seek to raise funds for Colchester CAP Debt Centre (CCDC).

At first glance you would be forgiven for thinking ‘What a cheek. I would love a day to relax and do nothing!’ But this will be no pleasant relaxation; I intend to spend the day (25th November 2019) mirroring the experience of someone whose debt has led to anxiety, depression and a fear of leaving their home.

For 9 hours I will close the curtains, ignore the doorbell, dim the lights, turn off the heating and remove ALL stimulation including phone, books, TV, radio, computer, etc

There are clear links between debt and mental health. CAP research found that 37% of clients considered or attempted suicide due to debt and its related stress.

CCDC has seen over 300 clients since 2013 and helped 100+ families become debt free. It costs over £30,000p.a. to run our centre and we have to raise funds to cover this. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Please help me get to my target of £650.
