East Lancashire campaigners in fight against 'real poverty'

CAMPAIGNERS fighting poverty across East Lancashire are looking to branch out their activities in 2013.

Supporters of Christians Against Poverty are urging churchgoers in Blackburn Diocese to consider establishing their own chapter, to further the charity’s work.

In particular the charity offers a money management course, to help people in East Lancashire to budget more efficiently day-to-day.

Sheila Fielding, the Blackburn centre manager, said: “Real poverty exists in this diocese and debt is a major contributor. For people on very low incomes, struggling to make ends meet, debt repayments can mean cutting out regular meals, heating, clothing or medication.”

If they gave up the fags, booze, flat screen tv, games consoles, and the rest of life's luxuries, they wouldn't be in this mess. It won't hurt little Johnny to go without the latest pair of fashion trainers.
Its time these kind had a long hard look at how lucky they are.
