A debt charity in Rugby is calling for people to start preparing for the festive season rather than relying on costly credit this December.
Hundreds of churches through the UK are offering free short courses throughout the autumn, including a team from Rugby who have trained with the charity to help the local community.
The CAP Money Course comprises three easy sessions to help set up a household budget and saving.
Paul Taylor who will be leading the course, said: “None of us like to think of Christmas when we have only just finished with the summer holidays.
“However, our last minute thinking sometimes results in desperate buying in December and this costs us all more in the end. What we’re saying is, with 100 days to go let’s take charge and have the Christmas we can afford, without the stress.”
The CAP Money Course now helps more than 10,000 people a year across the UK gain control of their finances with a cash-based system supported by flexible on-line tools. It is available for everyone and is suitable for all ages and situations.
There are two courses that will take place in Rugby during the autumn:
On Saturday mornings 4th, 11th and 18th October 2014, at 10.45am at The Hub Community Café, 31-32 High Street, Rugby CV21 3BW.
On Tuesday mornings 21st, 28th October and 4th Nov 2014, at 10.30am at Rugby Baptist Church, Regent Place, Rugby CV21 2PJ. To book your free place, or get more information, put your postcode into www.capmoneycourse.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org
