ReTreat's 5th Birthday – June 2021

It was fantastic to be able to treat clients again and celebrate in person ReTreat’s 5th Birthday. This time I sent out an email to every ReTreat client and posted a birthday message on social media. For everyone who replied to the birthday message or email, £1 was donated. I asked my clients to nominate a local charity and April Baker was the lucky winner with her nomination for Justlife Foundation (a charity supporting homeless people in Brighton) receiving a cheque for £130.

ReTreat's 4th Birthday – June 2020

Due to lock-down ReTreat was not able to open but this did not stop ReTreat donating to local people. To celebrate its 4th Birthday ReTreat donated 4 x 60min treatments to people who have made the world a better place during the very challenging time of the COVID crisis. These lucky recipients were nominated by ReTreat’s clients and 4 lucky names were picked out of a hat.

ReTreat's 3rd Birthday - June 2019

ReTreat again celebrated its birthday (3rd) by donating £3 for every 60min+ treatment from 28th June to 27th July 2019. One of ReTreats clients (Neil Morgan) nominated Emmaus as the benefiting charity. It was a pleasure to hand over a cheque for £175.

November 2018 Advent Food Bank Calendar Collection

During November ReTreat asked its clients to bring in food items to be added to its Advent Food Bank Calendar Collection. As a result Brighton Food Bank received 34kgs in groceries and £10 in cash donations. This means that local people who are on the edge of poverty that have been referred to the service will have a happier Christmas.

ReTreat’s 2nd Birthday - June 2018

To celebrate ReTreat’s second birthday (June 2018) I donated £2 for every treatment that I gave from 28th June to 27th July 2018 resulting in ‘The Purple People Kitchen Food Bank’ based at the Town Hall in Portslade (nominated by Jane Roddie) receiving a cheque for £166.

ReTreat would not have been as successful without the support I have received from my local community. As a ‘Thank You’ I plan to give an annual donation (starting July 2017) to a charity, nominated by one of my clients, to celebrate ReTreat’s birthday. I know there are many charities that have a personal meaning to my clients.

ReTreat's 1st Birthday - June 2017

To celebrate ReTreat’s first birthday (June 2017) I donated £1 for every treatment that I gave from 28th June to 27th July 2017 resulting in ‘The Secret Garden’ in Hove (nominated by Claire Martin) receiving a cheque for £78.
