A touch of TLC for a good cause
Posted on November 2, 2007
If you could do with some TLC and a spot of alternative therapy, Toddington Village Hall is the place to be on Sunday, November 11.
Gentle Touch Healing is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a free Healathon featuring 'tasters' of body and soul nourishing treatments such as aroma and emotional therapy, Indian head massage, kinesiology, metaphysical counselling and reflexology, as well as Bach and herb remedies.
Founder Ray Wilson said 10 healers and five therapists would be in attendance at the event which is open from 10am to 4pm.
Although there is no entry fee and no charge for any of the tasters, donations will be welcome. These will be split between the Healing Centre Building Fund and Macmillan Cancer Support. Tea and coffee, cakes and biscuits will be available for a 50p donation.
Ray, who eased Eaton Bray cancer victim Liz Farr's final months, is working towards establishing a £10 million pyramid-shape holistic healing centre in Bedfordshire. It will be ecological, carbon-neutral and planet-friendly.
He hopes to fund the building with donations and to run it through renting rooms to medical practitioners, complementary therapists and counsellors in addition to selling ranges of healing and health-related products.
The Healing Centre operates on Tuesday evenings at Flitwick's Rufus Centre.

Liz, who lived in Woodside, hit the headlines when her film-maker son Rob made a documentary of her illness, Making a Song and Dance About Cancer.
She also wrote and recorded the Thank You Song, with all proceeds going to Gentle Touch Healing. After her death, her widower Clive Bevins gave the charity a cheque for £2,000 towards the centre's building fund.
