Amanda Lund-Batchelor and her husband Duncan of Ananda Healing Limited felt compelled to donate a percentage of their companies earnings to a worthy charity and St Catherine’s is close too their hearts.
Ananda Healing Limited
For the last three years, Amanda and her husband Duncan have run a Holistics Therapy Practice called Ananda Healing Limited. They feel very passionate about peoples wellbeing and care and felt the synergee between the work they do and St Catherine’s to be very apt. Amanda and Duncan donate to one charity a year so when her father became ill and was cared for by the staff at St Catherine’s the connection become even more valuable. Amanda told us St Catherine’s has always been one of her favourite charities for the work they do, which extends to the families as well as the person who is unwell.
St Catherine’s Hospice:
St Catherine’s Hospice is a charity dedicated to providing specialised end of life care and support to local people, their families, friends and carers.
For over 25 years we have been providing high quality hospice care, free of charge, to people living in Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex and East Surrey. Hospice care is based on the belief that each person is more than their illness, and that each of us has unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. St Catherine’s responds to the needs of each individual, helping people achieve the best possible quality of life.
This highly personal, holistic approach to care takes time, skill and experience from a multi-professional team. We care for people in the hospice, in their homes and in nursing homes. We also provide training, advice and support to other health professionals.
Amanda and Duncan dedicated the month of September as their month for St Catherine’s, encouraging their clients to book in their treatments that month knowing a percentage of their money paid would then be donated to such a great charity. Amanda and Duncan raised a massive £160! Michael of St Catherine’s told us this is a staggering amount of money and gratefully received. Michael went on to tell us “this money could cover the cost of a patient to attend our Day Hospice for a week and a half, which makes such a difference. Every little helps and we are more than grateful to Ananda Healing for their donation”.
We would like to thank Amanda and Michael for talking to us. Well done to Ananda Healing for this very generous feat.
Why not dedicated a month to a charity of your choice and give a percentage of your earnings. If you choose to do this, Crawley Happy Times would like to hear from you 🙂
