Doncaster folk are being encouraged to have a go at yoga – and at the same time raise cash for St John’s Hospice Appeal.
Mick Hammond, who runs Tall Trees Yoga and Pilates Studio at Woodfield Park, Balby, and is a neighbour to St John’s Hospice, is running his third annual yogathon on Saturday July 9 from 10am to 4pm in his studio. Classes and workshops cost £5 or attendees can go to all sessions for £25 – with all money going to St John’s Hospice.
There will be a mindfulness workshop, a yoga and dance class, meditation and a sponsored ‘sun salutation’ or yogathon – wilth everything raised going to the hospice appeal. There will also be holistic therapies throughout the day with short treatments in return for donations to the cause.
It will all be topped off with a barbecue at the end of the day.
Mick said: “I am so proud of Tall Trees studio and the dedicated teachers who provide the classes. It is a beautiful place for yoga, we are so lucky and it’s a pleasure and a honour to give a little back by supporting such a worthwhile cause.”
Chris Smith, our Community Fundraiser for the Hospice Appeal, said: “I want to thanks Mick for running this event. It’s great to hear that all money raised from the day will go to our hospice appeal. Every penny that goes into our appeal goes towards supporting our patients.”
