Chamber Chat, an occasional newsletter from the centre, keeping you informed of the latest news around and about the centre.

This time we have great news about additional facilities at the Centre as our new sauna starts taking its first users. Also, now we have a new treatment room, Kim is making a celebratory offer of her therapies.  Find out more by downloading our latest edition of Chamber Chat

Our manager Joanne, is undertaking the Arctic Wilderness Challenge to help complete the purchase of our new Infrared Sauna as well as hoping to raise funds to buy an air conditioning and heating unit for the chambers

We've had a magnificent donation allowing us to commit funds to purchasing the Infrared Sauna, however we're still short of the total amount and to that end Joanne is willing to undergo the perils of the arctic, yes really!!

Having to build her own igloo, create a shelter for the huskies and driving - or "mushing" across the arctic for up to 7 hours a day will certainly be challenge and she's in training for it now. To see what Joanne will have to endure check out the challenge here

Our team are always trying to make our members as comfortable as possible and this summer's wonderful weather was a challenge when undergoing HBOT and conversely it's a bit chilly in winter. With this in mind we're wanting to raise extra funds to purchase a combined heating/cooling system purpose built for our chambers. It's typical of Joanne to undergo the hardships of the arctic so that we can feel comfortable whilst undergoing our therapy!

If you could sponsor her she'd be really grateful and give her that inner glow as she looks out of her igloo. Sponsorship forms are available at the centre or contact Joanne or even easier, go to her newly set up Just Giving page

 

A huge thanks to all the staff and customers at Morrisons Horsforth for their support with our charity collections over the last 8 years!

We received a staggering £40,629.84 in donations over this period from this one store!

We (Pam & Trevor) have now retired from fundraising and handed our collection buckets to a new coordinator!

Thanks for the wonderful send off we received, anyone would think we were part of the staff.

That's some target you've set Trevor & Pam - now we'll just have to set out to try and beat it. And it should be said that the support we have received from Morrisons at Horsforth along with the encouragement from Sarah Marston has played an massive part in this success. We're looking forward to picking up the bucket from where Trevor and Pam left off.

Trevor Gledhill, our champion of the supermarket collection has decided to retire.

Trevor has been at the centre for more years than we can remember and raised £1000s and £1000s.  We are  unsure of the exact amount and unable to ask him as he is on holiday in the sun!

Trevor has decided to hang up his 'bucket' and will no longer be doing the supermarket collections. We are sure Trevor would like to thank his merry band of collectors and his very patient wife Pam.

Morrisons Horsforth were sad to see Trevor and Pam go as they had become a part of the Morrisons family.

Joanne will be coordinating the collections along with Trevor's merry band and If anyone else would like to help please speak to Joanne.

Once again Trevor, we take our hats off to you and Pam for your unstinting efforts and  the time you've put in to the Centre to help it be what it is today.
