‘Boutique retreat company Our Retreat has announced the launch of its first Cancer Day Retreat for women, held on Saturday 30th March in collaboration with The Rook.
At the free-of-charge event in the West Sussex countryside, guests can receive motivational talks and experience various activities, from yoga and meditation, to sound therapy and makeup and beauty advice.
A survey reported that 97 per cent of UK spas would refuse to treat someone with cancer. Lisa Carolan, founder of Our Retreat, and Jemma Frizzell of The Rook, wanted to create an uplifting space where those in remission can rest, recharge and feel comfortable, supported and encouraged. Both women have been personally affected by cancer and understand first-hand how detrimental the disease can be for patients and their loved ones.’
