CAP Money to run again in June...

Foodbank opens two new centres...

The last CAP Money course was a great success and we will be running another course at Frontline in June. It’s a great opportunity to get some helpful ideas about how to manage your finances. The course will run on the 11th, 18th and 25th June. E-mail cap@imagineiftrust.org for more info.

Due to high demand at the Foodbank, we have partnered with 2 local churches to help us open two new distribution centres; one in Toxteth and one in the city centre. These centres will help us meet the needs of those struggling across our city. To get involved e-mail foodbank@imagineiftrust.org

Sticky Fingers film morning... You are invited to come and enjoy a FREE screening of Monsters Inc with your kids. There will be a selection of refreshments and snacks for sale including bacon butties, popcorn, cakes and pick ‘n’ mix. Come and join us! Saturday 25th May 10am-1pm @ Frontline

Streetwise serves those in need... One lady came to the Streetwise van in April who had been sleeping rough for a number of weeks. After a few phone calls we were able to arrange a hostel for her so she didn’t have to sleep on the streets anymore. We’re also really pleased to see that one of the girls has started a detox programme.


Could you help support a child in DR Congo? Uamusho School in Butembo has 325 pupils in primary and secondary. 30% of these children are orphans and cannot afford to pay their school fees. £10 a month will not only cover their school fees, but also help to cover the costs of school uniforms and paying their teaches a fair wage. Last term we were able to provide 120 new school uniforms for the children. If you would like to know more about setting Above: Pupils at Uamusho School in
