As 2020 draws to an end we will all be breathing a huge sigh of relief. It has been a very difficult year, mainly due to the Covid-19 pandemic and with Brexit finally on the horizon, the continued uncertainty it brings.
Through it all we’ve seen some terrific displays of community spirit and public generosity shining through. 2020 has been a difficult and, for many, traumatic year. As we head towards a very different Christmas, with families and friends experiencing a fragmented and fragile celebration, we all hope and pray for better times to come.
Our message this year is to encourage individuals, and businesses especially, to help others less fortunate than themselves through these tough times.
Throughout these difficult times, we know that vast amounts of people and businesses across Herefordshire have suffered enormously during 2020. Many of those businesses and families will never fully recover, if at all.
However, there will be businesses and individuals who have managed to get through without too much hardship and some will even have prospered during these times. To those who are in a position to, or who can, help others we encourage them to do so.
