Pounds for pampering: Therapy evening raises over £400 for charity

London Bridge Hospital has raised over £400 for its charity of the year, Connect, by hosting a therapy evening for all staff.

For a small charitable donation, London Bridge Hospital employees chose from a range of relaxing complementary therapy treatments including massage, reflexology and manicures and pedicures, which were kindly donated by students from Morley College, and massage therapist Ali Henry. A raffle was also held during the evening with prizes ranging from a dining voucher at the Hilton on Park Lane and wine and chocolates, to a free dietetic assessment with one of London Bridge Hospital's specialist dieticians.

London Bridge Hospital has been supporting Southwark based charity Connect Asphasia for several years, holding a range of fundraising events and activities including bingo nights, pub quizzes, raffles and in-house competitions. To mark National Asphasia Awareness Month, London Bridge Hospital will be holding a 'London Bridge Bake Off' for all budding bakers!

Connect Asphasia supports people living with aphasia, and their families. Aphasia is a communications disability that occurs when the communication centres in the brain are damaged. Although it is usually caused by a stroke, the condition can occur following a brain tumour, haemorrhage or head injury. Connect helps to improve the quality of life for people living with aphasia, equipping them to re-connect with life.
