COVID19 update

To all our supporters and schools. The current situation we find ourselves in is unprecedented. With schools closed for the foreseeable future it is with great regret and sadness that we have taken the decision to cancel all our experiences up to the summer holidays. We are contacting schools to make them aware of this and to rearrange experiences for the 2020/21 academic year ensuring that as many children as possible will be able to have the life changing experiences that they deserve.

We continue to look for alternative ways to support vulnerable children during this difficult time and are working with Back Pack Buddies to ensure that children and families are receiving healthy food. We have also worked with the University of Hull to supply reading and maths packs to vulnerable children.

For our children in care we have rearranged all experiences to take place during the summer holidays and October half term. We are assessing this situation on a regular basis and if this should change we will notify you. The children in care Letter Box Club one to one reading sessions normally delivered in schools for Hull and the East Riding have moved to online delivery. These are being designed following the local authorities guidance for working online with young people to ensure both the children and our team are safeguarded. Our Letter Box Club for Grimsby has been temporarily suspended and will continue when schools resume.

We appreciate all your support and patience during this time of great change. We want the charity to be here to support vulnerable children across Hull and the East Riding in the future and would be grateful if you could help support us financially during this challenging time. If you feel you are in a position to make a donation there is a donate button on our website.
