Integrated Health Centre offers over 60 pamper appointments as a part of Claire House Children’s Hospice Charity Day


People are invited to spoil themselves with a pamper session to raise funds for Claire House Children’s Hospice at Beehive Healthcare in Chester on 21 October.

Over 60 appointment slots are available for treatments ranging from specialist massage, acupuncture and reflexology through to facials, foot care and skin consultations. Beehive Healthcare has only been open a few months but charitable and community support is a very important part of the centre’s ethos.

“I met Fundraising Manager Claire Farrow at a networking event recently” said Sharon Shelbourne, Beehive Healthcare’s owner, “as soon as she told me more about Claire House and the inspiring work they carry out to support children who are unlikely to reach adulthood and their families, I wanted to get my business involved and do something.”

Rather than opt for sponsorship approaches Sharon wanted to do something that helps both the charity and the person donating! “People often view treatments as being a pamper session but actually the health benefits are well documented and many of our customers have ongoing health conditions that our treatments help with. We wanted to find a way that raised funds and also gave people permission to take time for themselves and their health. Carers in particular can often neglect their own health because they remain so focussed on the person they are caring for. We want to remind people that their health is their wealth and they can benefit from the treatment as well as support the cause.”

The therapists who offer services at the centre quickly agreed to offer their time for free to support the cause. The result is a Charity Day in support of Claire House Children’s Hospice. “Between 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on 21st October there will be 30 minute appointment slots available in a range of therapies. All we ask is that anyone who books an appointment then donates on the day to Claire House Children’s Hospice via one of our donation tins. Our suggested donation is from £5 upwards as most treatments would normally cost £25 upwards. We will also be giving discounts to customers based on how much they donate on the day. There are a wide range of treatments available so please get in touch to find out more!”

All proceeds raised from the event will be donated to Claire House Children’s Hospice.

Green Pages supports Host for Hope national events to help raise awareness about Pancreatic Cancer.

Host for Hope events are taking place all around the country and we are raising awareness for Pancreatic Cancer in memory of H Martin Swindells aka Mr HMS (late husband of Gaz Jabeen), who sadly lost his fight to Pancreatic Cancer last October. He died just short of 3 months from diagnosis and in that 3 months he showed great bravery with his Wheelbarrow Challenge and fight against this dreadful cancer. His wish was to help raise much needed awareness for this cancer which has one the lowest rates of survival than other cancers. We are being supported by Pancreatic Cancer UK - the main charity in the UK helping make a change. So we want to invite you to join us on at this Health & Wellbeing networking event as Novemebr is the Pancreatic Cancer awareness month and if everybody could wear something purple and maybe donate something towards fundraising that would be greatly appreciated.

Gaz Jabeen will be sharing her emotional story of Martin's bravery, his symptoms and the campaign she has carried out for her husbands wish to help make a difference to all those affected by Pancreatic Cancer and raising this much needed awareness.

We will also be lighting some landmarks in Purple lights to raise this awareness with our #purplelights campaign too.

Last year Gaz Jabeen lit the Welsh Mountain Zoo and Conwy Castle purple in his memory and this year we are bringing purple lights for hope to Chester.
