On September 26 the LCC youngsters are taking part in the silence to raise funds and awareness of the new Lowestoft Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Debt Centre that launched this month.

LCC has partnered with national charity, CAP, to provide debt advice and support from September 1, to help people gain freedom from their debts.

This is a completely free service open to anyone and can be accessed by calling 0800 328 0006 or getting more information from the Lowestoft Foodbank.

Caroline Landles, Lowestoft CAP debt centre manager, said: “I’m so excited to be a part of the debt centre launch and I’m really looking forward to being able to offer this help to those that need it.

“You may think your situation is impossible, but there is always hope.

“The children have been amazing in coming up with this idea, to then committing to keeping quiet and getting sponsorship.

“A massive well done and thank you. The money raised will make a real difference to many.”
