We hope you are keeping well, and our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by these challenging times.
It may seem that life is on-hold for the moment, but we wanted to get in touch to let you know what plans we have. We must admit that these are changing daily, and we’ll try to keep you updated as best we can.
For the time being, our offices are still open. However, from next week, we expect the majority of our staff will be working from home. We will endeavour to keep our coffee bar and gift shop at The Nightingale Centre open for as long as we can.
You have most probably seen that a lot of mass participant events have been postponed, and this is also affecting our smaller events. We know a number of our supporters are extremely disappointed, especially as so many of you have trained so hard for a particular sport event or put a lot of effort into organising your own fundraising event. Please know that we share this disappointment with you, but we are so grateful for your support. As above, we will update you as and when we hear anything from organisers or venues. Please also keep an eye on our social media for any updates.
Talking of social media, it most definitely seems to be all doom and gloom at the moment. To break this cycle, our aim is to fill our social media pages over the coming weeks with as much light-hearted and happy content as we can. We don’t know about you, but we’re fed up of reading about pasta and loo rolls! And so, if you have any ideas, or there’s anything you’d like to read about, please do get in touch! Also, we know the coming weeks and months may be very lonely for many of you, especially if you’re having to self-isolate, so do get in touch if you fancy a chat.
These are indeed very trying times for all sectors, and we understand much of your lives have had to come to somewhat of a halt. Please know that we will continue to work just as hard as ever in fundraising to make breast cancer a thing of the past, we’re just having to do it more creatively!
On that note, if you have the means, we are asking our supporters, if possible, to consider making an online donation to the charity, or indeed, setting up a direct debit. We understand these are pressing times, and with your continued support, we will ensure once this era of uncertainty is over, that we will continue to fund ground-breaking research and prevent breast cancer for future generations.
With our warmest wishes,
