Open Christmas 2020

Published on 28 September 2020 02:38 PM

It is with regret that due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, we have taken the decision that we will not be able to hold the Open Christmas event on Christmas Day this year.

We are saddened to have to take this course of action and it will be the first time in 38 years that we have not been able to arrange the event. Social distancing measures, the use of transport and both the clients’ and the volunteers’ safety has been taken into account along with Government restrictions and the uncertainty of how the pandemic will develop in the future.

It was not an easy decision and we are extremely disappointed that we are unable to run the event as it is one of the highlights of the year. However we are sure that everyone will appreciate the difficulties and will understand why we have had to cancel the event this year. We hope that by giving everyone as much notice as possible, those that usually attend may be able to make other arrangements for Christmas Day.
