EASTBOURNE chiropractors are supporting this year’s Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal by offering treatment to people who donate toys.
Every year, the Salvation Army runs its appeal asking people to donate a new unwrapped gift for a baby, child or teenager. The gifts are then wrapped and distributed to families who would otherwise have little or nothing on Christmas morning.
This year Lushington Chiropractic is offering patient consultations worth £49 to people who bring along suitable toys up to that value.
Dr James Revell at the clinic in Lushington Road said, “We really want this to be a big success and get lots of toys which will be delivered in time for Christmas to local children who might have little or nothing.
“We’re looking forward to being able to help in this way. People of all ages come to the clinic, including pregnant mothers, babies and children.
“We feel lucky to have such a fulfilling job, where we can actually help people with our hands. We are sure we’ll be busy over the two days and hope to get lots of gifts for The Salvation Army to pass on.”
The toys for treatment days are on Tuesday and Wednesday December 14 and 15.
Lushington chiropractors James Revell, Paula Moore, Jenny Dummett and Mark Thomas will be offering treatments in exchange for toys up to the value of £49.
Major David Squirrell and Pauline Peagam from the Eastbourne Citadel visited Lushington Chiropractic this week to kick start the appeal.
Major Squirrell said, “We are very grateful to the team at Lushington Chiropractic for supporting our Christmas present appeal in Eastbourne through this very kind offer.
“In exchange for feeling physically better through receiving their treatment on these days, donors can be assured their gifts will bring joy and happiness to people who would otherwise find Christmas a very difficult time.”
