Carrickfergus residents are being given another chance to get their finances in order with a free money management course.
Members of Carrickfergus Vineyard, who have been trained by the charity Christians Against Poverty, are running the sessions aimed at helping the local community handle the current economic downturn.
Money coach Gina Adams, who will be leading the CAP Money for Life course, said: “If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family.
“With households feeling the squeeze we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times.”
Carrickfergus Vineyard is one of more than 1,200 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who are regularly offering the course as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.
The CAP Money course has been found to be useful for newly retired people, soon-to-be students, mums dealing with mounting bills, families saving for a wedding and everyone in between.
Gina added: “We hope that we can help local people plan for the future and sort out any problems. You don’t have to be in debt to come along, rather after this course you should be able to prevent getting into debt by using our simple cash system.”
The next course takes place in Vineyard venue at 15 Lancasterian Street starting at 7.30pm on Thursday May 8.
