  • Annette’s Fundraising – from peak climbing to shiatsu sessions!

    July 15, 2019

    One of our lovely therapists, Annette Lucas, has decided to take on a personal challenge and arrange a number of events to raise money for Cavendish Cancer Care.

    3 Peaks in 24 Hours

    On 14th-15th September, Annette will be climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell & Snowdonia in just 24 hours!

    “Cavendish Cancer Care provides complementary therapies to children, from the age of 3, and adults who either have a cancer diagnosis themselves or to an individual affected by the cancer diagnosis of someone close to them.

    As most of you know I work at Cavendish (Acupuncture, Shiatsu and Massage Therapist) and see first hand how much the therapies that are offered can make a difference. Someone may want help with very physical issues, such as nausea, fatigue or pain; [and/or] support with the enormous emotional impact of having a cancer diagnosis. Sometimes, it’s just listening and massaging the hand of individuals who can feel so desperately alone with their own or loved one’s diagnosis.

    Aye, this will burn, this will pinch and it’ll be a challenge BUT no challenge, burn or pinch comes close to what the individuals that Cavendish work with face.

    I’ve paid to take part in this event (just saying as I like climbing mountains!) so all your pounds and pennies will directly benefit those affected by a cancer diagnosis.”

    Therapy at 4 Good Health

    On the 3rd August 2019, five therapists (including Annette) will be volunteering their time to offer Shiatsu and Acupuncture between 9am and 2.30pm. There will be 25 appointment slots, offered on a ‘pay as you can’ basis – no amount is too small. “Every bit helps,” says Annette, “so please don’t hesitate – book your place!”

    Lotte Cafe, opposite 4 Good Health clinic, will also be donating £1 from drinks ordered by participants on the day.

    Contact Annette on 07790 276565 or at 4goodhealth1@gmail.com to book your place.
