Macmillan Jersey are looking for Complementary Therapy Volunteers who specialise in massage and reflexology.

We are looking for complementary therapy volunteers who specialise in massage and reflexology to join our existing complementary therapy service within our Centre opening hours (10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday).

Training is mandatory for those wishing to volunteer and consists of a workshop provided by UK experienced therapists in cancer care ‘Using complementary therapies with cancer patients (one full day)’, as well as a full induction to the Centre and services provided (this usually lasts 1-2 hours).

Therapists who would like to volunteer can request an application form by contacting the Centre on tel: 498188 (press 1 for Cancer Information and Support) or by e-mail: admin@macmillanjersey.com Candidates will be required to attend an informal interview and if successful, we will require two references and a DBS check.

Sanctuary Trust is organising an Art Exhibition to be held at Fort Regent from 6th May until the 27th May in order to celebrate our 5th anniversary, and raise awareness and funds for our charity. We house many homeless men on the island, and work to get them back into work and their own homes again.

We are calling on local artists and photographers to produce pieces for the exhibition. The exhibition is titled ‘Park Lane to Park Bench and back’. We are wanting to get a complete representation of homelessness shown, looking at both heading down the road to homelessness, but also that it is possible to get back to where you were again with a helping hand. It would be interesting to look beyond the park bench, and also to look at the public perception of homeless people, and be quite emotive.

We will be able to hold approximately 40 pieces at the exhibition, so please email Tori Ducker at tori@sanctuarytrust.org.je  if you would like to be featured with an outline of what you would like to produce so that we can ensure we avoid too much overlap.

Our hope is that pieces will be purchased, with all monies going straight to Sanctuary Trust, and therefore would be incredibly grateful if pieces could be donated to the charity, though if this would not be possible, please contact Tori to discuss this.

We would like pieces by Friday 15th April please, so that we can arrange how the exhibition will be set. If you would be able to provide us with pieces ready to hang we would be very grateful.

If you would like any more information, please contact Tori on 07829 888616 or email tori@sanctuarytrust.org.je
