Catch22 was thrilled to receive a letter of appreciation for third sector staff and services from our Patron during this unprecedented time.
The letter reads:
“As I have had to postpone my visits for this spring and summer, I did just want to record how much I appreciate the difficulties you all face over the next few weeks and months.
“Many of you will have found ways to adapt your skills, which are so important to the organisations you either work or volunteer for, to help in your own isolation or to help others cope better in those many jobs that cannot stop.
“I was planning another charities forum this summer to underline the value of understanding each others strengths and achievements as well as the added value of working better together. The next forum will be especially interesting with many lessons to be shared.
“I look forward to hearing from you and catching up as soon as possible. Thank you for all you do, wherever you are.”
We were lucky enough to have HRH The Princess Royal visit our Apprenticeship Awards in September last year at AA headquarters where our apprentices were presented their awards by HRH. More recently, Catch22 was excited to welcome HRH to visit our rehabilitation services at HMP Thameside earlier this year.
We look forward to attending the charities forum in the summer and hope to welcome HRH to another one of our services in the near future.
