Please email before each session to let us know you plan to attend.
The group will cost at least £28 per session to run. There will be a suggested minimum donation to cover base costs, however those in financial hardship will not be required to donate as we do not want to deter anyone from attending if they need support. This will be an honesty based policy and reviewed in the future if needs be.
