Charity Event raising Funds for Macmillan Cancer and Chernobyl Childrens Lifeline 28th May 2010
Clare Singleton from "Revital" organised a charity event to raise money for MacMillian Cancer/ Chernobyl Child Life Life - a great event that has now raised £1700 for the charities!
During June this year the group volunteered to give Reiki and other complementary therapies at the Kennington Summer Fayre in Ashford on 20th June 2009.
Practitioners gave Reiki, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage.
Funds raised were donated to the Chernobyl Children's Lifeline.
Sarah and a couple of her Chernobyl quests are shown below together with a group of Reiki practitioners at the event.
Last Year (2008): On receiving a donation of £10 for the charity, the group's members volunteered to give free Reiki treatments to the donors at their Meeting on the 25th June 2008.
People new to Reiki were able to discover the benefits of this wonderful treatment, bringing relief from stress and tension and promoting a sense of calmness and well-being, which in turn stimulates the body's own self-healing mechanism.
By taking us up on this offer donors not only received something in return but also helped bring happiness into the lives of some needy Chernobyl Children.
The Reiki evening was a great success, with free refreshments, a tombola and free draw.
Our thanks go out to all who supported the event: The donors, Reiki practitioners and members of the Chernobyl charity who gave their time doing the refreshments and tombola.
A grand total of £370 was donated during the evening - enough to bring another child victim of the Chernobyl disaster on a recuperative break to Kent during the summer when the radiation is at high levels in their homeland.
Children like these, victims of the fallout from the Chernobyl disaster back in 1986, are amongst the 3.5 million living today in poverty and sickness in contaminated areas of Belarus.
When the radiation levels in the dust rise in summer it is important for as many of these children as possible to get away from the contaminated farmland and food to build up their immune systems in a cleaner environment.
Local families in Ashford & Romney Marsh have been volunteering as hosts for some of these children over past years and it is the aim of Sarah, the area co-ordinator of 'The Chernobyl Children's Lifeline' to bring as many children across for a break as possible. 19 children will arrive in August this year.
