It was all about rest and relaxation at the Colchester Recovery Centre for 12 loved ones as they checked in for a Respite weekend earlier this month.
The three day break was packed full of fun activities such as jewellery making and games as well as holistic treatments including Shiatsu, aromatherapy massage and Reiki plus beauty packages like manicures and pedicures.
For Lindsay Mccafferty it was her first visit to the Recovery Centre.
Speaking about the weekend Lindsay said: “It has been so amazing. I wasn't sure what to expect and have felt truly spoiled for the first time in too many years. Thank you”
Since then, Lindsay has used the Centre on a regular basis, attending the weekly yoga classes and is instantly feeling the benefits. She added:
“All Band of Sisters need to do this. I have come home so refreshed and ready to start living again, not just existing. My family deserve better, I deserve better. Step one is getting hubby back on the can do wagon rather than can not wagon.”
And true to her word Lindsay’s hubby Dave attended the Centre’s weekly Rifle Club activity. The verdict “He has not stopped smiling all day!”
