Lunch with Jay Blades - Postponed

Is the Spring Lunch going ahead? 
 
Unfortunately not. We’ve been carefully monitoring the situation with the spread of coronavirus and given how serious this threat is, and particularly given the vulnerable nature of the people we care for, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this event. We’re hoping to go ahead with this next yearThis will now be held on the 23rd January 2021. It isn’t a decision that we take lightly, but we have to prioritise the safety of our staff, patients and volunteers.
 
When will it be held? 
 
This event will now take place on Saturday 23rd January 2021.

Can I get my ticket refunded? 
 
We completely understand you’re disappointed and really hope you can attend the rearranged date of the 23rd January 2021. If you’re not able to make the new date, we’re happy to refund the ticket - please get in touch directly with our fundraising team on 01904 777 777 and ask for either Sarah Atkinson or Katie Ayrton.  
 
Because of the nature of the threat of coronavirus, we are facing unprecedented demand for our services at a time when many of our fundraising events are being postponed. This leaves us with a financial hole we need to fill. If you could consider transferring your ticket money to a donation to the Hospice, we’d be incredibly grateful. 
 
Why aren’t you going ahead with this event? 
 
As ever, your safety is our paramount concern, and going ahead with an event with a large group of people in an enclosed space did not seem in the best interests of the general public. We understand there will be disappointment, but we take the advice from Public Health England very seriously, and hope that you will continue to support this event on its new date. 
 
Is there anything I can do to help? 
 
Yes! Because of the nature of the threat of coronavirus, we are facing unprecedented demand for our services at a time when many of our fundraising events are being postponed. This leaves us with a financial hole we need to fill. Anything you can do to support your local hospice care for our community at this difficult time is so appreciated. Please look at the “I want to help” section of this website. Thank you.
