Wellspring London & Stratford: Update on COVID–19
August 18th, 2021
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our town hall meeting today. We appreciate the ongoing support from our Wellspring community as we continue to provide services and supports for those impacted by cancer.
Highlights of the town hall discussion include:
We continue to have excellent response to our virtual programs and have seen tremendous growth in our art therapy, yoga and meditation programs. Thank you to Wanda for revamping our art therapy program and seeing substantial growth this summer with new people trying and engaging in this program! We have also had great success with our partnership with Childcan and look forward to offering a music therapy program this fall for siblings of children living with cancer.
Thank you to our ONERUN team for a tremendous success in raising $120,000 for Wellspring this year! A huge thank you to our Friends of Wellspring for the fundraising efforts this year as well, totaling over $8500 to date.
We are looking for everyone to support our Walk for Wellspring, happening the entire month of September to help us reach the 1 Million dollar milestone. We need to collectively raise $52,000 to do this! Tracey Jones, the ED for Wellspring, will be walking in Pinafore Park in St. Thomas on Sunday, September 5th at 10 am, Springbank Park in London on Sunday, September 19th and back in Pinafore on Sunday, September 26th at 10 am. She has invited people to come out and walk with her to help us reach that goal. Directions and times will be posted on our website: walkforwellspring.ca
Reopening the Centres
Wellspring London and Region is excited to announce that we will be reopening our centres on Monday, January 3rd, 2022 which aligns with Wellspring Canada. More details will be provided about our phased approach to reopening and reintroducing our in-person programs again. More information will be provided in November and posted on our website. We look forward to welcoming our Wellspring family back into our beautiful spaces again.
Many thanks again for your unwavering support of all of us here at Wellspring London and Region. If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly and we will do our best to answer anything that we can!
Enjoy a wonderful week and stay safe and healthy!
