The Trinity Holistic Centre Family Day

Posted on in Support groups, The trust

The Trinity Holistic Centre is holding its first ever family day on Saturday 16 August 2014.

Aimed at families who have been recently affected by a cancer diagnosis, the free event features a fun-packed programme of events for all ages including the chance for youngsters to perfect their footballing skills with Middlesbrough Football Club’s under 21 players Lewis Maloney and Luke Coddington.

The family day runs from 12pm to 4pm and also features a singing workshop, family portraits, crafts, bouncy castle, face painting, storytelling and the opportunity to help create a new piece of artwork for the centre’s garden.

Adults can join in too and can also relax with free complementary therapy taster sessions available throughout the afternoon.

Business Manager Heather McLean said: “We are really excited to be hosting this fantastic first event and we are over the moon to have the support of Middlesbrough Football Club.

“This is not a fundraiser, it’s a chance for families who have been affected by cancer to do something fun together, find out more about the wellbeing projects we have available here in the centre and influence the development of new services to help even more families in the future.

“The free event has also been supported by SG Petch of Darlington whose staff have been fantastic fundraisers for the centre in recent months.”

Anyone with cancer who is under the care of any consultant at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust can access complementary services at the Trinity Holistic Centre.

Based at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, the centre recently expanded to include a bedside service for inpatients along with a number of wellbeing projects to support patients and carers.
