Scheme is extended

Have your say

A CHARITY is extending its over-50s summer scheme after it proved to be a hit.

Healing Opportunities (Hops) is offering up to four treatments at half-price between now and the end of December.

It offers reflexology, reiki healing, shiatsu, aromatherapy, massage and Indian head massage from its centre in Roker Park Road.

It is also offering treatments and courses free of charge to carers and concessions to others.

Hops was set up to help carers, older people and people who are recovering from mental illness.

Weekly courses will run from Monday and include ways to wellbeing, tai chi, relaxation and meditation, with singing sessions a new addition to the programme.
