ART FOR CAP is a group of artists offering their works to help fundraise for the life-transforming ministry of the Christians Against Poverty Debt Centre in Yeovil, in its 10th anniversary year.  Due to the pandemic, unfortunately, we’ve not been able to have our pop-up shop in the Yeovil Quedam, something we’ve had for several years, but we do have a website https://art-for-cap.square.site where paintings and quality greetings cards can be purchased.  Having a pop-up shop brings in the Yeovil community to view and purchase works of art but for the past 16 months this has not been the case, therefore, may we ask you to please view our website and in purchasing greetings cards/paintings, this will help keep our debt centre open – in 10 years 440 local households have reached out for help, with 106 going debt-free.  Thank you for your support.
