Annual Dinner

It is with a heavy heart that I have to confirm our annual  dinner is cancelled We have a responsibility to our guests who had kindly booked for the event and know that they understand.  This is the 4th fundraising event lost this year, either organised ourselves or other supporters.  Sadly Covid is no respecter of anyone.
We would remind you that we are still supporting our clients. The translators are also working hard to ensure timely appointments. Please do not sit on a problem at home.
In the meantime we would like to thank everyone who supports the Charity.  From all who did the 6k challenge, our advertisers in the calendar and the outlets who sell them. Our tins are out there too and every little helps.  Special thanks for our kind donations this year and to Amanda Oakley for her ongoing support.
I wish everyone to stay safe and pray for a better 2021 when we can hopefully have our 10th anniversary walk.  Jean Bircher.
