Fundraising for The Lavender Touch ( Scottish Borders Charity)
raised of £500 target
Event: Edinburgh Marathon 2024, on 26 May 2024


Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 💜

I am running my first ever marathon in Edinburgh on the 26th May. I want to run the Marathon to raise funds for The Lavender Touch in the Scottish Borders. I work as a staff nurse in the Margaret Kerr Unit at the borders general Hospital. I have worked there since it opened its doors in 2013 and I have also spent some time working in the Borders Macmillan centre.

I have seen myself the difference The Lavender Touch makes to patients living with cancer and their loved ones. The Lavender Touch provides therapeutic treatments tailored to relieve stress, anxiety and other symptoms associated with the disease and cancer treatments. I see how much patients and their loved ones really appreciate these treatments.

The charity helps to fund complementary therapeutic treatments, these include massage, reflexology, and aromatherapy, delivered by qualified therapists. The Lavender touch also have therapy products which are specially designed to help relieve side effects of cancer and its treatment.

Thank you so much for your support. Every donation and any share on social media helps the charity, raises awareness and benefits patients in the Scottish Borders.
