What happens when you tick the box

2022

Farnham Aldershot Guildford Hampshire Surrey Photographer

It’s been 2 years since we started our Doorstep Portraits here in Tongham & I had some great news from Sandy at the Royal Surrey County Hospital Charity  when she visited the studio recently. This is what happens when you tick the box!

The total was £1501 but now the gift aid has now been added onto everyone’s donations who ticked the gift aid box and it has taken it up to a MASSIVE

£1782.62!!

Sandy also updated me on what the funds were put towards at The Royal Surrey County Hospital

“Affectionately called the ‘Wellbeing Cabin’, its doors were officially opened on, Tuesday 5 October 2021, A brand new wellbeing space to care for the mental and physical wellbeing of Royal Surrey staff has opened its doors thanks to more than £100,000 generously donated by the public. The new permanent building was made possible thanks to a grant from the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 appeal and support by own our charity. The space will be exclusively used for the Trust’s health and wellbeing programme offering free holistic therapies and a variety of courses and exercise sessions, ensuring staff are nurtured, supported and re-energised after caring for patients during the pandemic.”

I’m so pleased that all those donations went towards this lovely cabin that the fab staff at one of our local hospitals.

“Yoga, Tai-Chi and, Flex and Stretch classes have begun, whilst some of the junior doctors have been making use of the space after shifts, taking part in exercise sessions with colleagues. A full timetable of events will be rolled out this autumn. These will be available to all staff and will include access to Clinical Psychology services supporting individual mental health.”

The Royal Surrey Hospital Charity continues to fund raise throughout the year and have these events coming up:

Not sure what hypnobirthing is all about?

Not sure what hypnobirthing is all about?

Right, let me say one thing right off the bat… Hypnobirthing needs a name change because let’s face it, it’s pretty rubbish and it doesn’t really define what courses like this are about these days, well… most of them anyway!
Hypnobirthing has been around for a LONG time and it’s definitely not the fad that it’s made out to be. Nor is it all about crystals and chanting! Since it’s inception many years ago, it has evolved into something pretty awesome.
