A Christian debt-help charity has been getting stuck in with festive gift-wrapping to help support families affected by money woes.

Christians Against Poverty staged a ‘CAP wrap’ for all the presents it has donated this Christmas, which will benefit around 50 children and 30 adults who are feeling the pinch.

The gifts, which range from toys to beauty products, have been given by donors at the New Horizons Christian Fellowship and Adeyfield Free Church.

Owen Cooper, manager of the charity’s Hemel Hempstead branch, said: “Asking for help is always hard, and I think this will encourage families and help them realise there are people out there who want to help, inspire and bless them.

“I want people to know they don’t have to turn to payday loans that can cripple them even more. We don’t want people to overspend at Christmas, so this is just to try and ease that pressure, to keep people on the right track and debt-free.”

The charity has also nominated 15 needy families to receive an extra-special Christmas food bundle from the DENS Dacorum Foodbank.
