Covid-19: Keeping us all safe

We’re pleased to have our fundraising team working back in our office at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, so have put some measures in place to ensure our staff, and any visitors, are kept safe.

If you would like to visit the office, please contact us on 01743 492396 or hello@lingendavies.co.uk by 3pm the day before you’re thinking of coming to see us. We just need to make sure you’ll be the only visitor so that we can follow 2m social distancing guidelines. When you are visiting us, please wear a face covering at all times. We will have face coverings and hand sanitizer available, and our staff will also be wearing a face covering.

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to invite you in to our office space, but we have chairs you can sit on in our foyer.

If you are bringing us a donation, please try to bring this in cheque form. We can still accept cash though.

Fundraising

Like all charities in these uncertain times Lingen Davies Cancer Fund has been hugely financially impacted and are concerned about the continuing impact the pandemic may have on our fundraising. Our income is down by 57% compared to last year, as we rely heavily on our annual income being generated from voluntary donations. As our local communities restricted movement earlier this year we took the decision to cancel all of our scheduled events including our Shrewsbury Colour Run, Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea and Summer Ball. We were devastated to have to make these decisions but the safety of our participants, staff and volunteers is crucial.

We are extremely grateful for all of the support we get from the local community whether that is from donations of time, money or services. However in this time of financial uncertainty we urge supporters who are able to, to support where they can. You can make a donation (here) which would be gratefully received, especially if you could commit to a regular amount (here) to provide us some certainty in the months ahead. Donors who give a monthly donation to our charity will be welcomed to our ‘Friends of Lingen Davies’ Scheme…you can find out more about that here.

We know being there for cancer patients, and their families, in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales is so important and so, we want to make sure we are still there for them when the Coronavirus pandemic is over.

Thank you for your continued support.
