Ernest Hibbert, Co-Founder, Community Awareness Programme
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that Ernest passed away peacefully on Sunday 8th November 2020. Ernest and his wife Elisabeth established the organisation in 1997 and it is thanks to their vision, compassion and energy that the service thrives as much as it does today reaching out to help people in need.
So many of us connected with our amazing charity are now confronted with dealing with a massive, heartfelt loss.
As the tributes to Ernest come flooding in, many people have asked if there is an opportunity to donate to CAP Care in his memory.
Please use the below link for this, and to share amongst your local networks of friends and associates.
Thank you all so much..
Keeping CAP safe
CAP has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. But things do look a little different.
UPDATE 23 Mar 2020 – Community Awareness Programme
In line with specific Government guidelines we remain open for clients.
We have implemented several restrictions to our services and reduced opening times to 10am-12.30pm Monday to Friday.
These measures are necessary to match demand with our diminished team of staff and volunteers and also to allow safe interaction between clients in line with the vital social distancing measures. The people who are having to stay at home are doing so with the heaviest of hearts and we thank and value them immensely. I would also like to thank those of you who have offered to fill in the gaps… stay by the phone!
Thanks to everyone for your ongoing and heartfelt support for us (which you are continuing to show in many ways) as we strive to keep on giving crucial help to the disadvantaged in our community. This support is VERY much appreciated by us all in these surreal times.
Take care all of you and watch this space for further updates as the situation develops.
Additionally the AGM is cancelled until it can be safely rescheduled.
