This is a financially very challenging time for the charity. It is normally the time when the majority of funds come in. However, the vast majority of events that fundraisers and their generous supporters would participate in have been cancelled. Please consider setting up a monthly donation to help us through this difficult time.
We have created a set of Frequently Asked Questions including information on social distancing and medication. You can find the FAQs here.
