Therapists have donated £1,000 to the Chiltern Centre for disabled children in Henley. The Be Well Centre, which takes place at King’s Arms Barn every Monday lunchtime during term term, raised the money through donations from clients. The therapists presented the cheque to Paul Barrett, chairman of trustees (far left), and community fund-raiser Harriett Barcella (second left) in the presence of the Mayor Julian Brookes (centre). Kate Crossland (third left), an energy healer from Henley, said: “We’ve probably raised a bit more this time round because we have grown and are getting more donations. We always try to raise money for charities that benefit the local community.” Mr Barrett said: “It’s fantastic that they are doing their bit.” Mrs Barcella said the money would go towards the £300,000 needed each year to keep the centre’s services going. She said: “These support disabled children, young people and their families. I want to say a huge thank-you to all the therapists and the people who come and use their services.” Different therapies are on offer each week atÂ Be Well and clients are asked to give a minimum donation of £5. Each week’s therapists are listed in theÂ Henley Standard’sÂ chemists rota on page 2.
