    The Very Beginning 1997-2017


    In the late 80’s Ernest and I travelled to London for a weekend break.  Little did we know that our lives would be changed during that visit.  It was there that our eyes were first opened to the plight of the street homeless and those in depravity and even though we both knew as individuals that our hearts had been touched, it was only in a passing conversation almost twelve months later we realised that the yearning to make a difference was mutual. The ones we wanted to help were not however in our capital but in our hometown of Wakefield.


    We opened CAP on the 5th September 1997.  The story continues.................
