Catbells – Amount Raised

We are delighted to report that our Catbells climb raised a grand total of £354.30. Many, many thanks to all our sponsors. We, and all of the team at Northumbria Healers, are immensely grateful as this sponsorship money will help us to continue to provide our healing services for the people of Northumberland and Tyneside.

Catbells Conquered

Carbells ConqueredWe climbed Catbells like a pair of moutain goats, reaching the top in record time!  Here is photographic evidence of us at the top, proudly displaying our Northumbria Healers flyers.  We were accompanied by 4 ladies who work with June and Emily the dog who all followed.  Emily had to be passed by hand up the rocky slopes as her paws had no purchase. Everyone had a grand day out, and we are sincerely grateful to our sponsors. Thank you so much. We will report on the final amount raised but it is looking to be in the region of £300.

And next year …onward and upward… higher and higher!

This is a sample from the CD:


Northumbria Healers was set up in April 2012 to provide a centre for the provision of healing services to local communities in Northumberland and Tyneside.

The centre at Riding Mill in Northumberland offers you the opportunity to experience the relaxing benefits of energy healing in a welcoming and calming space.  Healing sessions are available on the last Saturday of every month and will complement any medical treatment or medication that you are taking, with a view to helping you to manage the impact of your illness.

The Centre is open to all and is based at the Parish Hall, Millfield Road, Riding Mill, NE44 6DJ from 2-4pm.  No appointment is necessary, just drop in, but please be aware that the last healing session is at 3.40pm.  The atmosphere is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Should you have to wait, you will be offered some light refreshment, until a healer is available for you.

Healing is offered free of charge, but to help towards the rent and running costs, donations are appreciated in order to keep the Centre open. A suggested donation is £5.00 but we are grateful to accept whatever you can afford .

On occasion we also use Newton and Bywell Community Hall at Newton, near Corbridge. For details of where and when the Healing Centre will be held, please click here.

The Healing Centre is easily reached by road or rail. For further details please click on the Google Maps icon below.

*This project is supported by the Awards for All Lottery Grant and by Northumberland County Council Community Chest Programme.
