Fundraising events going ahead as planned

Today, the Scottish Government announced that mass public gatherings of over 500 people are to be cancelled to reduce the pressure on emergency services because of coronavirus.

We would like to reassure you that currently ALL our fundraising events are going ahead as planned.

The vast majority involve less than 500 people, and those above that threshold are later in the year. So, what we’ve decided to do with our big events is to wait and see what Scottish Government’s detailed guidance says on Monday. You can find the latest information about our events at http://www.chss.org.uk/events

We need your support now more than ever. Every penny you raise goes towards helping our amazing nurses, support workers and volunteers who are on the frontline, caring for people with chest, heart and stroke conditions who are most at risk of developing serious coronavirus symptoms. So, please continue your fantastic fundraising!
