Message from Odette, CEO and Family Liaison Officer
We are working hard to evaluate our current support offering to bereaved families at these extremely troubling times we are all facing.
Following an emergency meeting last night we have cancelled our facilitated groups up to and including April. We will be making a decision about groups in May and June at a later date but assure you that we are continuously assessing the situation. We are assessing a number of options as to how we can help our beneficiaries and will be in a position to share more about this early next week.
In line with all guidance we have also cancelled all fundraising events up until the end of May and will be postponing Jessica’s Rainbow Colour Run. Further details about this will be shared in the coming days once we have spoken to our suppliers and stakeholders and appreciate your patience at this time.
In the meantime we owe a gratitude of debt to those volunteers who are still able to help, to those fundraisers who have started the year off for us so well, to our corporate partners and all of our supporters who are facing uncertain times.
We promise you that our beneficiaries will remain at the forefront of what we do and will continue to keep everyone updated as and when we make decisions.
Our telephone lines and email and registration process will continue but we appreciate your patience with the lengthened time in which it may take for us to respond.
