NHS Gift Retreat

Our free retreat for NHS workers
During the Spring of 2020 when the pandemic first came to the UK, we created the concept of a gift retreat so that we could give something back to NHS and Essential Workers who were working so hard looking after us all.

We joined forces with the visionary owner of Tofte Manor to create a free 2 night retreat for our guests to relax at peaceful private manor and enjoy a restorative retreat programme created with love and gratitude by some of the best wellness professionals around, who all volunteered their time. 

Our special guests
We asked you to nominate people who deserved a place on our retreat. We received over 150 nominations for 18 retreat places. From doctors, nurses, cleaners and carers to paramedics, care home staff and social workers, so many special people were nominated for going above and beyond during a difficult time.

We selected 18 people for our first free retreat and it took place on 30th September to 2nd October.  It was absolutely brilliant. Read all about it here.

Please help us raise funds for another gift retreat
As we head into winter, we know life is going to be tough again for those working in the NHS and Essential Services. We plan to run another retreat 2-4 March 2021 so that we can offer our services to more people who will benefit from our services after working so hard through the winter.

We need £3000 to cover our accommodation, food costs & team travel. If you would like to donate towards another gift retreat any amount is welcome. Thank you so much.
