Robinwood Activity Centre Charity Open Day sadly cancelled
Today CVSRT would normally be attending and supporting the annual Robinwood Activity Centre Charity Open Day at Dobroyd Castle, Todmorden, but as some of you may be aware the event has been unfortunately cancelled due to the recent fire that has sadly caused damage leaving some of the activity areas out of action.
The Robinwood Activity Centre Manager has released a statement:
“The Robinwood Open Day at Dobroyd Castle on Saturday 27th August has been cancelled, due to activity building fire damage. Robinwood, Dobroyd Castle, will open for school groups from Friday 2nd Sepember 2016 as scheduled.
We have, with regret, decided to cancel our charity open day which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 27th August, due to the damage caused by a fire in one of the activity buildings on Sunday morning 14th August.
As a result of the fire there are 3 activity sessions currently out of action and an area of the courtyard has also needed to be sectioned of for safety reasons. We need to work to ensure the activity centre, post fire, is ready and in the best state possible for visiting schools. We will be opening as scheduled for school groups, with a revised timetable on Friday 2nd September. We will be in touch groups booked in to confirm further details.
We apologise for the cancellation of this year’s open day, but will continue to run a charity open day in future years just prior to the start of our Autumn season. Although the open day will not be taking place this year we will still be making a total donation of £5,000 to charity; this is around the amount that we would expect to raise on the open day.
We would like to offer our thanks to all the fire fighters who did such a fantastic job in putting the fire out before it spread. We also appreciate all the good wishes and assistance offered.
We will be working hard to get the activity centre back to operating the ultimate Robinwood timetable as swiftly as we can”.
Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team would like to wish the management and all the staff at Robinwood, Dobroyd Castle a speedy recovery and sincere thanks for their continued support, even in the face of adversity. Please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance if you need any help getting the buildings back into shape for the kids.
