    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    El Santuario welcomes people who are battling serious illness or in recovery. This sanctuary will support everyone who walks through the magnificent doors with its 5*support, love and care.

    I have spent 40+ years of my life battling. Cancer, rheumatoid arthritis,
    bereavement and physical abuse. I understand how it feels to have no hope, to have no resources and to have nowhere to go.

    El Santuario is my dream. I am paying it forward from everyone who walked alongside me throughout my journey; my teachers, my loved ones, my healers…

    This is my leap of faith. I have invested all that I own to create this Healing Centre that will unite people from every walk of life, from any part of the world, who want to heal body, mind, heart and soul without exclusion.

    It is sad to say, that we all probably know someone in need of such support and a safe-haven to enable them to fight with everything they have in their own battles, and to recover and to recuperate.

    I ask you now to join me in creating this wonderful sanctuary for all; lets make a difference in this world, together.

    What will the funds pay for?
    My husband and I have sold our own home to fund the purchase of El Santuario.

    We need these funds to enable us to convert this beautiful space into the healing centre including all the equipment that is required. We have been blessed by the support we have already received from individuals and businesses around the UK. We are still in need of the essentials that will complete the renovation and make the difference to you and your loved ones;
    a bathroom suite with an easy to access jacuzzi bath to soothe away aches and pains, a medical double bed that will allow our guests to lay and sleep with their loved ones, a massage table, foot spa, towels, bedding, massage oils, massage creams, yoga mats, first aid kit, a massage chair, meditation cushions and healing music, blankets, pillows, duvets…

      Finally - The lesson learnt? You will never see the vision clearly if you only stand at the bottom of the mountain waiting for the miracle to happen by itself…. The climb can be flipping hard though….. xMelx

      Part 4 - We are still buying it out of our own funds and your donations are for the items needed to turn it into the safe healing haven it will be for all of you to come and experience the nurturing of Mind, Body Heart and Soul. The universe simply opened up an opportunity and then made something bigger and better arise out of it. Frankly if we hadn’t seen the first house we would never have stood on the land and known that this was the vision I had been given…. There was never a clarity as to which mountain it would be on!

      Part 3 – The new El Santuario has better views, a private swimming pool and more outside space with 3 bathrooms. The catch - it needs updating, painting and some major gardening and restoration of the pool, this will begin in early summer simply putting the opening date back a little, rest assured this will be financed by Neil and I not the Just Giving Funds kindly donated by you all so far for the project to have wings.
