Grow Your Tenner!

Grow Your Tenner!

Dear friends

We are delighted to be part of this wonderful campaign that literally doubles donations made via the LocalGiving “Grow Your Tenner” programme.

Since 2012 the “Grow Your Tenner” campaign has raised over £6 million for local charities and community groups and in 2016 Grow Your Tenner raised over £1 million for more than 1,300 LocalGiving members.

Simply, for every donation of £10 we receive, the Grow Your Tenner fund doubles that donation to £20 and there is also an option for Gift Aid that would increase the donation further to £22.50. (Donations can be made up to £30 via the site, although only £10 of this is doubled.)

As you may be aware, the Hope Centre Manchester is run entirely by volunteers who give their time and support of its many of its events.

All funds we raise will enable us to continue to support local projects, such as young offenders, carers and local families for whom previous funding is no longer available.

If you can support the work of the Hope Centre in the local community, please visit our Grow Your Tenner webpage at: https://localgiving.org/charity/lightofhope/ and make your donation.

For further information about LocalGiving, please see their website at
https://localgiving.org/what-we-do/campaigns/grow-your-tenner

The event opens on 17th October at 10am and runs until 16th November or until the funding runs out – we would really appreciate your support for our work.

Touch of Light Massage Course 2017 – Starting in April

Touch of Light Massage Course 2017 – Starting in April

Massage is sharing touch used to heal and soothe the body, mind and spirit. It has been so for many thousands of years, and is something we do naturally with loved ones when we ‘rub it better’.

The Touch of Light Massage Course is about developing and expanding not only your knowledge of massage techniques but also to bring greater understanding of yourself and your client’s needs in order that you may give as you would wish to receive. Massage aims to bring calm, peace, harmony, alignment, flexibility, flow and strength.

The graduate of this diploma will have the opportunity to work in one of our healing clinics to obtain clinical practice, where their professionalism and competency as a therapist may be developed in a well established and busy clinic environment. Students are supported in their individual and natural development as a therapist.

The course has proved to be life changing for many students who will learn to manage their energy, relationships, work and personal life better. Our approach is non denominational and will appeal to all those who have an interest in spirituality, healing and the many questions of life, death and disease which too rarely find a forum for respectful discussion and debate. Students will discover and develop healing and intuitive gifts in an atmosphere of fun and mutual respect. The course is about the practical, everyday application of spiritual understanding.

We are based in Sale, Cheshire. The cost of the course can be paid over 12 months or up front with a 15% discount. The monthly cost is £39.60 (plus 10% deposit £52.80). Full payment in advance £448.80. (10% CONCESSIONS)
