14/01/2021 - 17/01/2021 All Day
It is with a heavy heart that St Luke’s Hospice has made the very difficult decision to cancel our Christmas Tree Collection which was due to begin on Thursday 14th January.
We are so sad to have come to this decision as we would never want to let you, our kind supporters, down in any way and the decision has not been taken lightly.
We have made the decision as we feel the risk of going ahead with the tree collection is too great to our staff and volunteers in light of the increasing transmission of Covid-19 in Cheshire and the number of people hospitalised at present. As a critical care provider ourselves we really have a duty of care to the local community and as such feel that we should, where possible, be encouraging people to stay at home in line with Government guidance to protect our NHS.
An email will be sent out from our partners at the JustHelping charity to all of you who have booked a tree collection. If you have registered for a collection please look out for the JustHelping name as the email will not come from us at St Luke’s Hospice.
This is a devastating blow for the Hospice after an extremely challenging year for fundraising. The Christmas Tree Collection is one of our biggest annual campaigns generating vital funds which we rely on to continue to provide our care. We know that times are tough for everyone, however if you are able to let the Hospice hold on to your donation then we would be incredibly grateful. Of course we completely understand if you would like a refund and details of how to request this will be included in the email from JustHelping.
Once again we would like to reiterate how very sorry we are. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
