After the latest advice from the Government in relation to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, Heart of Kent Hospice has reviewed all forthcoming activities. Consequently, we have taken the difficult decision to avoid all external events and meetings. This will unfortunately include the Carol Service organised by Vox Cantium Choir and volunteer committee in aid of Heart of Kent Hospice at All Saints Church on Wednesday 15 December 2021.

We are incredibly disappointed that we have had to take this decision but as well as the potential risk to people attending, we don’t want to do anything that might contribute to community transmission of Omicron.

We are grateful to the choir and volunteer committee for all the hard work they have put into arranging the Carol Service. Peter Brice, Vox Cantium’s Director of Music, has directed every Carol Service since it started in 1995 and we were very much looking forward to celebrating his 25th anniversary - we regret that the spread of the Omicron is preventing us from doing that this year.

We are very thankful to everyone who has supported the Hospice by donating towards this event.  We rely on fundraising now, more than ever. This last-minute change to our plans clearly illustrates the impact that the pandemic is still having on fundraising activities which raise the vital funds the Hospice needs to continue providing care and support to terminally ill people locally.

At the time of writing, we understand that the Vox Cantium Choir are intending to continue with the performance and this performance is now being run and managed by them. Please contact flicbrodie@hotmail.co.uk for all future updates relating to this event.

Thank you for your understanding and we wish you and your family a safe and Merry Christmas.
