Oundle Mencap 2020 – Update

23 May 2020

All of us at Oundle Mencap Holidays, like many of you, have been closely monitoring the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the uncertainty over when the necessary Government restrictions might be relaxed, the impact of social distancing measures put in place within educational and residential settings, and the ever-changing landscape beyond this, we have had to think very carefully about the viability of the Oundle School Mencap Holiday in August 2020, in its present format.

The health and safety of our holiday makers and volunteer staff are our primary concern and it is with great regret that we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s holiday.

Whilst we have no doubt everyone will be hugely disappointed with this news; we have not made this decision lightly and do believe it is the right thing to do at this stage for all concerned.

We know that our holidays a highlight for many, providing much enjoyment for holidaymakers and volunteer staff. In these challenging times this would no doubt have been all the more valued which is why we are particularly disappointed at not being able to go ahead as we had hoped.

We will be in touch regarding future holidays for 2021 and in the meantime we very much hope you stay safe and well.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this letter, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
