Our Response to the Covid-19 Situation
Posted on 23rd Apr 2020 by Sarah Gray
The Trustees and HQ staff hope all our Burma Star Association members and your families are taking care and staying safe in these times of uncertainty.
Following HMG’s announcement about travel restrictions and limiting movement the Headquarters’ staff are now all working from their homes. This will continue until HMG gives ‘the all clear’.
If anybody has sent anything to the office by post we will not be able to respond to them until we return. Any post sent should be in a secure building, although unoccupied. If anyone has sent a cheque and is concerned about its security it is suggested that you cancel the cheque and re-issue it when we return to ‘normal’, but please keep in mind that cheques are valid for six months from the date on the cheque.
The answer machine in the office is switched on, as is the Benevolence Secretary’s, so listen carefully to the messages - don’t just hang up when you hear it is a machine not a person.
Emails should continue to be received as usual and will be replied to at the best of our ability without the normal access to all the material we would have. Please all take care and do get in touch if you need us.
