Two dates for your diaries

I have 2 more charity events coming up in September. The first is on Saturday 10th, at the Artisan's, Arts and Crafts Market in St Albans Town Hall. The second is a week later (Saturday 17th) at Riverside Shopping Centre in Hemel Hempstead.  Both events run from 10.00 until 4.00.

I’ll be doing taster massages of 10 minutes, either Thai Foot, Hand, Indian Head or neck and shoulder. All proceeds (there’s a minimum donation of £5) will be given to World Vision’s East African Appeal.

More than nine million people in East Africa are facing a devastating lack of food and water. Families have faced persistent drought for many years – but the situation is now critical. 2011 has been the driest year for 50 years.

World Vision is already providing food, water and hygiene provision to families across Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia – but urgently need more funds.

World Vision is one of the world's leading relief and development agencies. It is a Christian charity currently helping people in over 100 countries in their struggle against poverty, hunger and injustice, irrespective of their religious beliefs.

Berkhamsted on 21st August was a good start, but I'd really like to make a lot more money for a really worthy cause.

If you are in the area on either day, please take the time to pop in and see me, have a massage and some tea, and make as generous a donation as you can manage.
