As lockdown restrictions are slowly being lifted, we wanted to take the opportunity to update supporters on upcoming events, donations and accessing support.
We are now able to receive donations again and hope to hold some fundraising events from the summer, if (fingers crossed) the roadmap out of lockdown progresses as expected.
Our recent blog outlined a couple of events that we have planned for the coming months and how supporters can book their places at these events. We are really looking forward to being able to welcome supporters back to events after over a year without holding any in-person fundraising activities!
We remain optimistic that the roadmap out of lockdown will continue as planned, allowing these events to take place, but will follow guidance from the Government and Public Health at the time to ensure it is safe to do so.
Unfortunately Run Norwich, which Leeway was an official charity partner of, has been cancelled. This will now take place in July 2022 and anyone that has signed up to run for Leeway will receive more information about this in due course.
Be sure to keep an eye on our social media channels for the latest news regarding upcoming events and campaigns.
Thankyou for Your Donations
The support we have received throughout the pandemic has been fantastic and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of our supporters. We are delighted to say that we are able to accept donations of items again, but will be operating a booking system to ensure the safety of staff and supporters.
Anyone donating must contact our Donations Officer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time slot and also confirm the items currently accepted by Leeway. This is to ensure that safe social distancing and other Covid19 precautionary measures are in place for those dropping off items.
During the pandemic we have seen an increase in the number of people contacting us for advice and support, and we expect this to continue as lockdown measures are lifted further.
Leewayâ€™s services are running as normal and can be accessed via:
If you are in immediate danger, call 999. If it is not safe for you to speak, press 55 when prompted. This will alert the call handler that it is not safe for you to speak, but they will still be able to send support to you.
