After Chin-up’s appearance on Look North (16th July 2020), we have been inundated with offers of cleaning, for which we are very grateful. The house will be staying closed until we have everything in place to welcome our first families in a safe and secure environment, Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who got in contact with me, it’s lovely to know people care.
Take care and stay safe,

Ellen – Chair

Great North run

I’ll start by saying all at Chin Up hope everyone is safe and well. Chin up is sad to say that the Great North Run has been cancelled this year due to Covid 19. We have retained our quota of tokens for 2021, so start an exercise regime for 2021. Thank you to every one for their continued support.

Hate having to write this but as of today, again, because of the on going coronavirus situation it has been decided that Jonathan’s house in Seahouses is closed for the rest of this year. Really sorry to all those families that were booked, we are in the business of trying to help families have a lovely time for a week but, the situation means we have to take this action. Next year Chin-up will be back to doing what it does best, offering families a chance to have a fun time together. Take care everyone and be safe.

Jonathan’s House Closure

Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, Chin-Up has taken the decision – under advisement – to shut down Jonathan’s House for April, May, June, July and August. Any decision Chin-Up makes is not taken lightly we know how much these holidays mean to families. Chin-Up has also suspended all fund raising activites..
It’s not an easy decision but in these times, a necessary one.

From all Chin-up, please stay safe. Again if anyone needs to talk I’m always here.

Ellen
