Roc Vannin like the rest of the Island had to isolate themselves during the worst of Covid 19 and we unable to meet for our usual rehearsals or to take part in any of our planned performances. Whilst we were unable to meet, our members were very keen to keep up our interaction with the local community.
Roc Vannin, since our inception, has always raised money for local charities. so we figured that this should continue especially during that difficult time. Although unable to perform and collect donations, our members being the lovely people that they are, unanimously decided to continue paying their subs, on the condition that the money collected should go to local charities to help them out during this most challenging time.
We looked at local charities which we thought might be struggling and would benefit the most and after such careful consideration we sent donations of £1000 to each of the following with the hope that our donations will in some small way, assist them all in their valuable work:
The IOM Foodbank
Cruse Bereavement Care
We also provided some tasty treats for the staff in the Blood Bank and Outpatients. Thanks to The Nutty Chef Cafe Onchan and Robinsons for supplying the treats.
We are now back to rehearsals and abiding by the rules and practising all our repotoire for the up and coming events.
