Praise God- and Thank You!- 13th August 2015
I am writing to extend a huge ''Thank You'' for all your prayer and donations since we wrote asking for your support for our Cybertill Campaign this Summer. I am delighted to report that this campaign has been a resounding success- and with less than few weeks to go!
We wrote to you in June asking for your help in raising an additional £20,000 before the end of August, to help cover the cost of installing Cybertills in all of our sites by the end of the year. Your response was astounding: thanks to your prayers and financial support, in just over a month we have already raised an incredible £18,000.
On top of this there are more CCA supporters keen to make donation, but who have not yet had the chance (because of holidays etc), so we are expecting this impressive figure to rise even further. We are accepting donations for the Cybertill Campaign up until 31 August, so we are confident we will achieve the golden £20k by then. We will update you again at the end of the Summer, after the campaign window has closed.
Cybertills enable us to claim back tax on donations in a more automated way, potentially increasing the charity's income by thousands of pounds per annum. With more financial resources behind us, we will be able to reach out to more people in our local community, demonstrating God's love by meeting their practical needs and restoring self-worth. This is CCA's mission and it makes a real, tangible difference to people's lives.
As we said to you before, we have has Cybertill in our Wokingham Road shop and our Furniture Outlet at Silver Street since 2013, so we know it works. We have recently installed Cybertill in Sonning Common and Oxford Road, and the next is planned for our Southcote shop, the intention being to complete the roll-out to all our stores by the end of this calendar year

The window for donations to this particular campaign stays open till 31 August. Feel free to encourage others to give. Donors can go towww.ccam.org.uk and click on 'Donate' or send us a cheque, payable to CCAM, using the envelope provided- and of course enclosing a completed Gift Aid form so we can claim the tax back on their donation.
Thank you once again for gifts of prayer and money- and for being part of what we do: demonstrating God's love by meeting people's practical needs and restoring self-worth.
As we've said to you before we really couldn't do it without you! Thanking you again!
