Weekly News - 13th May 2020

Welcome to the Sunshine and Smiles weekly newsletter! This is where you will find all our upcoming events and news.

Given the current government guidance regarding social distancing and non-essential social gatherings we have taken the very difficult decision to temporarily suspend all our groups, face to face sessions, activities and to close 21 Co. Shop & Café.

This decision has not been made lightly and we know it has implications for many people.

We are still available by telephone and email for advice, support and signposting – please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time:

Telephone: 07725041601

Email: hello@sunshineandsmiles.org.uk

Some of our sessions are now available online. Please see the events calendar on our website to see what's on.
