Through the efforts of our Fund Raising officer Nick, it is now possible to have donations made to the charity by AmazonSmile.
If you already make private purchases on Amazon by changing to AmazonSmile and adding from the drop down charity list, our charity, we will receive 0.5% on every relevant purchase made at no cost to you. I have added some details below supplied by Amazon.
As a charity our foremost responsibility is to you. In light of the current situation in regards to the virus Covid 19 (Coronavirus) and that most, if not all of us, fall under the current ‘at risk, vulnerable groups’, I believe the best and safest way forward, is to suspend all classes and monthly evening meetings immediately.
We will review the situation on a monthly basis and we will update you when classes and the monthly Monday evening meetings can safely resume. We will also keep the website updated
If you have any concerns about your own health and think you may have symptoms of Covid 19 (Coronavirus) go online to the NHS 111 service. If you are not able to access the internet ring NHS on 111.
My best wishes to you. Mark Carter Chairman York Coronary Support Group Trust
