We would like to correct an inaccurate report that appeared in the Evening Express of 3 January 2018 which stated that Aberdeen Cyrenians were closed over the festive period.
Our website was very clear on our festive opening hours. As always, our Street Alternatives service ran an extended service opening each day between 20 December and 7 January .
Street Alternatives provides meal services and personal care to the most vulnerable people in our community including those sleeping rough. Our staff and volunteer teams worked hard throughout this period to ensure that this service was available every day including both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. We are keen that the commitment of our staff, volunteers and everyone who supports them is correctly recognised.
