An event to bring together the best of holistic therapies has raised more than £500 for charity.

Sacred Haven took place at the Ennerdale Country House Hotel, in Cleator, on March 15.

It raised £580 for CFM cash for kids with the entry fee and prize raffle.

Organiser Emma Summerfield said: “Our wonderful community really pulled together and the event was filled with extra positivity, we had a wonderful local face painter, Katy Leese, based in Workington, who created so much joy with her amazing face painting designs and actually donated her profits to the charity.

“The staff of the Ennerdale all joined in by having their faces decorated and serving scrumptious homemade meals.

“We had truly amazing youth charity volunteers, Rhianna Summerfield, 12, Tilli Parker, 11, and Zoe Warwick, 12, all from local secondary schools, giving up their time to help sell raffle tickets, help clear up, look after visitors and exhibitors on the day.

“The whole event was buzzing and so many of our visitors shared what a very welcome respite and sanctuary it was from the craziness of what was happening in our world right now, plus how helpful holistic therapies, health foods, products and lifestyle advice was especially during this awful coronavirus outbreak.”

Emma is planning a wellbeing festival on June 28 at the same venue. She said: “We will see what happens regarding government guidelines in the next few weeks.”
