Mindfulness fundraising day; lowering stress and raising funds for Worcestershire Association of Carers.
A Kidderminster hypnotherapist, Joanne Carthew, is using her Mindfulness training skills to raise funds to support local carers. Worcestershire Association of Carers (WAC) gives vital support for those adults providing unpaid care –this could be for a neighbour, relative or friend.
Worcestershire Association of Carers is a registered charity providing an independent source of information, advice and support for the 63,000 unpaid adult carers in Worcestershire. They provide a wide range of services, including direct support and training. To find out more, you can call WAC’s helpline on 0300 012 4272 or visit www.carersworcs.org.uk or you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
“There are at least 63,000 unpaid carers in Worcestershire” explained Joanne “as a therapist and volunteer at a local hospice I see both the value of caring but also the difficulties experienced by carers and their families. Many carers experience high levels of stress, anxiety and depression. I decided to run a Mindfulness charity day because Mindfulness can encourage a sense of calmness and resilience, giving individuals some peace in a frantic world.”
Joanne will be holding the fundraising day on Saturday October 17 at Breathe Holistic Therapies Kidderminster Treatment room. Individual “Introduction to Mindfulness” sessions will be available and all donations will go towards WAC’s valuable work. You do not have to be a carer to book; the day is open to everyone interested in Mindfulness.
