Our Retreat launches Cancer Day Retreat

UK: 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.

Hosted in the newly-refurbished The Rook venue, in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, the Cancer Day Retreat will begin with a fresh welcome juice and nutrition advice from vegan nutritionist and  food influencer, Feed Me Mumma, who will share her top tips on how to make quick, healthy meals. This will be followed by a talk on life after cancer with a special guest speaker, and yoga, Pilates and movement therapy with both Kate Lister and Jade McClernon.

There will also be makeup tutorials from a make-up artist, using beauty brand Urban Decay cosmetics.

Our Retreat founder Lisa alongside her good friend and now business partner Jemma hope that this new Cancer Day Retreat will be the first of many; as they hope to help, inspire and educate those living with cancer on the importance of putting yourself first and taking care of your mind, body and soul.

Be in the know.
