Week 22 Report - 4th June 2022

It was a fantastic day yesterday, we couldn't have had better weather for the Ely Jubilee celebrations and the whole city seemed to be out and about enjoying the day and the various stalls and activities.
The CAP stall was a part of the St. Mary's Jubilee celebrations, raising money for four charities through stalls and teas and coffees. 

We had a prime location next to the church gate with everyone going past for the teas and coffees or for the other stalls on St. Mary's Green so a prime spot for footfall! We had a selection of information about CAP and a range of plants throughout the day, some homemade lemon curd and some bunches of rhubarb, all for a donation rather than a fixed price.

I will let you know what the total raised for CAP will be in a future report, but we received many generous donations and had a lot of conversations, including several very worthwhile ones about CAP, who we are and what we do.

Thank you to John, Pat and Derek for their help and for all those who supported the stall. In all, it was a great way to be visible as Ely and District CAP and if it helps one person see a possible way out of debt then it has been so worthwhile!

Isaiah 52:7 (NIV)
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Please pray for all the clients Ely and District CAP are supporting, that freedom from debt will help them to know peace in their lives and a better future. Give thanks for events such as this and the support hub, that Ely and District CAP may be present in the local community and seen as a place to come for support and help. 

Have a good week!
