Statement from Nightingale House Reads:
You will be aware of the current news and concerns over the COVID-19 Virus and the measures being taken to mitigate the risk of infection.
As a result, Nightingale House Hospice has made the decision to cancel our Party on the Pitch event which was due to take place on Saturday 23rd May at Wrexham Racecourse.
It has been a difficult decision to make but we feel it is the best decision for the safety of our supporters, staff and volunteers.
This is a cancellation notice and we won't be postponing the event; we will instead be looking into other lower-risk options to replace the income so we can continue to generate vital funds for patient care.
There are just under 10 weeks until the event was due to take place but because of the uncertainty of mass participation events in relation to the Covid-19 Virus we wanted to give our supporters plenty of notice whilst we are busy planning the rest of our fundraising activities calendar.
We are speaking with the venue, sponsors and registered participants directly about this and organising refunds.
Thank you for your understanding and we do hope you will continue to support patient care here at Nightingale House Hospice.
