Ultimate pampering to make you feel special
FROM reflexology to ear candling, charitable therapists are uniting once more to give you the ultimate pampering.
Tomorrow will see the 14th annual complementary therapy taster day take place in North Thoresby's village hall.
The day, which will run from 9.30am to 5pm, is being held in aid of St Andrew's Hospice and Marie Curie Cancer Care – the two charities which received £800 each from the same event last year.
Organisers now hope for a similar success tomorrow and are encouraging people to try a range of treatments on the day.

Acupressure, massages, reiki, reflexology and ear candling are just a few of the therapies which will be available.
The annual fundraising event was started by four people in 1998. Mary Wheatley and Barbara McKinnell still organise and participate in memory of the two other ladies and dear friends – Val Lee and Denise Ingamells – who lost their own cancer battles.
Mary, of Cleethorpes, is an independent therapist and claims the event is worth while attending.
"A lot of people will never have tried complementary therapy before so this event is for them to come and try it out at a reasonable price," she said.
"As it is for charity, all treatments last half an hour and only cost £5.
"We choose to support cancer charities as everyone has been affected by the disease in one way or another."
Speaking about Val and Denise, Mary said: "They were both very passionate about the event, especially as they found complementary therapy a help themselves when battling cancer.
"I want to thank all the therapists who give up their free time to support the day, without them this could never happen and we are very grateful."
Debbie Scott and Andrea Herron now help organise the event with Mary and Barbara.
Debbie, said: "Anybody is welcome to come along on the day but people need to be aware that there will be a limited amount of appointments available for each treatment.
"It is always well attended and I hope the day opens people's eyes to complementary therapy, especially to those who have never tried it."
