Central Coast Family Support Services (CCFSS) held a Health and Wellness Day for local grandmothers raising their grandchildren, on February 15.
As a way of acknowledging the extraordinary efforts of these women, CCFSS held a high tea at the Sea Salt Restaurant, Crowne Plaza, Terrigal, followed by a massage at the Endota Spa, also in the hotel.
The point of the day was to give grandmothers a moment of mindfulness and self-indulgence that they rarely have time for in their hectic schedules.
“With daily stress and trauma management a regular occurrence in these grandmothers’ lives, the sense of relief that was found simply by learning how to clear the mind, was huge,” said event organiser, Kristina Gowlland.
“With many never having stepped foot within the Crown Plaza, kind donations from community businesses, Coles Erina, Blooms Chemist Erina, Anjul Salon Terrigal, Beach House Beauty Therapy in Davistown and Catherine Martire-Wright, Wellness Coach, were an added extra,” Gowlland said.
