Phys­io­ther­apy firm raf­fle

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

A MAC­CLES­FIELD based phys­io­ther­apy and com­ple­men­tary ther­apy prac­tice is hold­ing a 40th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion fundraiser for East Cheshire Hospice in mem­ory of its founder.

Es­tab­lished by phys­io­ther­a­pist John Honey in 1974, Trin­ity House Prac­tice is launch­ing a ma­jor raf­fle from Septem­ber 1.

The prac­tice’s direc­tor of clin­i­cal ser­vices, Ross White­side, said: “John founded and built up this busi­ness from scratch, start­ing in a con­verted pigsty in Pott Shrigley.

“Un­for­tu­nately John died from can­cer in 1993 but was well sup­ported by the staff and vol­un­teers at East Cheshire Hospice.

“This prac­tice has been proud to sup­port the hospice ever since. John’s son Mike and his wife Lisa grew it into a suc­cess­ful mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary prac­tice.

“Not only did the hospice sup­port John Honey but it con­tin­ues to do such im­por­tant work.

“In par­tic­u­lar we ap­plaud its work with com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies with pa­tients to help give peo­ple a bet­ter qual­ity of life.”

The Trin­ity House Prac­ticea raf­fle will run un­til a draw on De­cem­ber 22, with a top prize ofs a £250 iPad mini, plus vouch­ers for free treat­ments at the prac­tice in­clud­ing life coach­ing, shiatsu mas­sage, re­flex­ol­ogy, reiki and one-on-one pi­lates.

The prac­tice’s sports masseur has also pledged to give 10 per cent of her Septem­ber prof­its to the hospice and the firm is run­ning a se­ries of ex­pert talks in re­turn for do­na­tions.
