A special spa event will be held in Donegal next week to benefit people affected by cancer.

The Marine Spa at the Sandhouse Hotel in Rossnowlagh are holding a Wellness for Cancer fundraiser on Tuesday 29th August 2017.

From 11am to 3pm, the free event will have sample pamper session and treatments for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer – from carers, patients and those indirectly affected by the disease.

The Marine Spa’s qualified cancer therapists will be on hand to offer complimentary treatments and inspirational Sister Helen Kelly will be sharing ideas on all things wellness.

Karla Gallagher of the Sandhouse Marine Spa said this event will be about showing people what is available to them when they have uncertainties about treatments:

“We have done intensive training for wellness for cancer – caring for people who have been affected directly or indirectly by cancer.

“This was very important for us as we have a lot of customers that have unfortunately been in this position so it was important for the spa to be a safe place for them to go.

“We are holding this fundraiser to raise awareness that these treatments are available here and also to raise much-needed funds for the hospice rooms in Donegal Community Hospital,” Karla said.
