**Unfortunately we have an increasing number of clients who book events but do not attend (DNA) nor cancel. DNA’s have a negative impact on our ability to secure repeat funding and we are required to put measures in place to reduce them. Therefore, it has become necessary to charge booking deposits for our free events. This deposit will be refunded after attendance at all 3 sessions. Eventbrite booking fees are non-refundable. If you wish you may opt to donate your booking deposit to PSC. Please choose the appropriate ticket when booking. Thank you for your understanding.**
