...And relax! Local therapists invited to support hospice patients

Blythe House Hospicecare is on the lookout for volunteer complementary therapists, to support local people affected by life-limiting illness. 

The hospice, based in Chapel-en-le-Frith, offers free complementary therapy services, including acupuncture and massage, to patients who have a life-limiting diagnosis, and their carers. 

Complementary therapists who would like a rewarding volunteer role offering aromatherapy, reflexology and other therapies are being urged to get in touch. 

Sports therapist, Derek Turner, has volunteered for over 14 years, said: “Through word of mouth, I heard about the good work that Blythe House did and decided that I’d like to be involved."

He went on: “Two of my family members had used the hospice’s services and found them so supportive. I also wanted to be involved with people across the spectrum of physiotherapy needs and I wanted to help them. 

“I get a feeling of “doing good” for those in need, through the services of a professionally run care organisation. Both the care giving, and a professional environment are important to me. It is a “win-win:” those in need benefit, and so do I, by giving back to the local community.”
