Lit Residential update:
Unfortunately, Rock UK have confirmed that the centre will not be able re-open this year. We have two options available: postpone the trip to 2021 or cancel and risk losing some of our deposit. We are currently in conversation with ROCK UK about the potential financial implication so we will be in touch next month with further details. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you again for your continued support.
God bless you,
Paul & our awesome youth team!
