am an ITEC qualified Holistic Therapist having trained in Exeter at
Devon Academy of Complementary Therapies in 2011. I continue
to train in new therapies and techniques to offer my clients the
best of treatments.
I volunteer 1 day a week at The Long House North Devon Hospice in Holsworthy. I love my volunteering time with the hospice because I know how much people benefit from this kind of support. As well as the therapies that I provide, patients and families can access so much from The Long House. Everything is free of charge, but North Devon Hospice is a charity, so they need people to dig deep in order to make it all happen
Head Shaved for Charity:
I was approaching my 40th birthday and thought this was a great way to celebrate. I didn’t need any presents or anything like that, I would rather people sponsor me for my head shave instead. I set up an online fundraising page and got my sponsor forms in every place I could think. On the day, we held a bit of an event at my local pub, The Bridge Inn at Bridgerule, where we had cake sales and a raffle to top up my fundraising. I set myself the target of £500, so when everything was counted, I was amazed to be told I’d actually raised over £1,200!
