MORE than £100 has been raised by a Caterham massage business in a bid to collect funds for the NHS frontline heroes.
Christian Jolley, from Caterham, is asking people to ‘Make Movements’ for the NHS, by taking part in his 30-minute online stretch sessions costing £5.
He said: “The sessions are a triple threat – they keep me engaged with society, get people moving and they raise some money for an amazing group of modern-day heroes.”
The 31-year-old is the founder of Make Movements, a mobile massage and movement therapy service.
Since the government announced the ongoing lockdown period, on March 23rd, he launched the online sessions that involve a range of static and dynamic stretches, along with some gentle mobility work.
He said: “I wanted to come up with a way to contribute and being a huge advocate for movement and wellbeing, the virtual stretch therapy sessions came to life.”
All of the money raised will go towards the NHS Charities COVID-19 Appeal.
This appeal will help fund wellbeing packages for staff and volunteers, pay for food deliveries, cost of travel, and will go towards longer term mental health support for NHS staff and their families.
So far, since launching the Stretch Therapy Sessions, more than 20 workshops have taken place, helping to raise just over £100 for the good cause.
The sessions are available for all age ranges and can be tailored to you. They can be delivered on a 1:1 basis or as a group session.
