April 2020 – Monthly catch up

By Mark Healey

Welcome to the April issue of our newsletter.

It is with great sadness that we share the news that one of our fabulous volunteers Paul Quigley died last month following complications caused by the Coronavirus. Another one of our volunteers has thankfully recovered from the virus whilst a third volunteer has lost his flatmate/partner/friend of several years. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this awful crisis.

Since the 10th March we suspended our volunteer sessions and have been working remotely where possible. Unfortunately we have concluded that it is not safe to go ahead with the April Acts of Remembrance this year following the Government’s advice to encourage social distancing.

Stay safe, be well and support those you can without putting yourselves at risk.
