Hospice postpones Girls Night Out fundraiser
We have made the difficult decision to postpone our Girls Night Out walk, which was due to take place tomorrow (Saturday, 10 September) evening.
We have made this decision following the death of the Queen.
Charlie De-Moore, the Hospice’s events manager, said: “This has been an incredibly difficult decision and not one that we have taken lightly. We know how much Girls Night Out means to people, and we are deeply sorry for any upset this news will cause.
“However, as the whole nation enters a period of mourning for the Queen, we felt that this was the right and respectful decision to make, and we send our condolences to the Royal Family at this difficult time.
“We hope our community will understand our decision. At this sad time, we are reminded of the importance of care and support at the end of life, and our charity simply wouldn’t be able to do what it does without the amazing support of our community.
“At this time, we are unable to give a new date for the walk. We are working hard to adapt our plans, and as soon as we have further information, we will let people know.
“Thank you, everyone, for your understanding.”
Those who were due to take part in the event as well as those who were due to support on the night as volunteers have been contacted by email, and we will be sharing further detail when we can.
