It is with great sadness that the trustees of The Hurley Foundation announce that they have started the process of voluntarily winding up the charity. The trustees have to ensure that the charity is able to achieve the charitable goals outlined in the constitution whilst being financially solvent. The coronavirus pandemic and increasingly difficult landscape in the charity sector have made this incredibly difficult and the only sensible course of action was to wind up the charity.
The Hurley events will return in 2022 but will revert to being run by Andrew Jackson and Kayakojacko. There are still many hurdles to cross to bring an event such as Hurley into being and we hope that these can all be addressed before March 2022. We never intended to run a large scale evening in 2021 as most of the organising team are involved in bringing the Freestyle World Championships to Nottingham but keep an eye out for smaller local events.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported the charity either through donations or by attending the Hurley events. Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved with securing the long term future of the event.
