Medicine for the soul

Do you need a little soul medicine in your life?

Join the Girls Around Town this weekend to learn how, through wellbeing workshops in England, healing retreats in France and self-development home courses, Danushia Kaczmarek can help you say goodbye to chronic illness, fear, worry, grief and more…

She’ll be chatting to June and Rosalyn about her own journey, explaining how suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for eight years eventually led to a heart attack on New Year’s Eve 2013.

“For many years, I thought I was happy but deep inside myself I was sad, angry and felt a failure,” she says. “With these suppressed and hidden feelings, I became ill and overloaded with emotions which eventually led to the CFS.”

The heart attack which followed was, in her words, a total wake up call and the fork in her road through life. Now, in the Soul Medicine workshops and retreats she runs, Danushia helps clients change their own lives for the  better, healing and transforming them from the inside out.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to hear her story and find out how a dose of soul medicine could set you on the path to a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life…

Falling in love with fashion

Hopefully there’s still a little time left to enjoy the last few weeks of summer but even so it’s probably not too early to start looking ahead to autumn.

And if in your case that means thinking about shopping for new outfits, Ann Hayes from Ann et Vin and Lucky Secret Boutique‘s Sue Allen will be in the studio next weekend with news of something which will definitely be right up your street…

The street in question is Castlegate in Newark, the ‘something’ is an Autumn Fashion Show and, given the fact that it’s being hosted by Ann et Vin, you won’t be surprised to learn that there’ll be fizz as well as fashion on Thursday 12 September!

From 6.30pm to 9.30pm, local businesses will be joining forces to raise funds for Beaumond House Community Hospice in an evening which features new autumn ranges from Lucky Secret Boutique alongside handbags, lingerie, jewellery, scarves, shoes, make up and more.

Tickets are on sale now, priced £15 each which includes a glass of Prosecco on arrival and nibbles during the interval. To book your seat by the catwalk, visit Lucky Secret Boutique on Wilson Street or call 01636 919748.

And don’t forget to tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11am next Sunday when Ann and Sue will be sharing more details of the event with the Girls Around Town.

They’ll be chatting to June, who already has her ticket for the show – but then what else would you expect from a self-confessed shopaholic?!

Bra-vo!

When Janice Holmes popped into the studio at the beginning of June to launch her Bring Out Your Bras! appeal, the Girls Around Town were confident she’d have plenty of support from the ladies of Newark and beyond…

But who could have imagined that, two months on, a staggering 8,000-plus bras are now in a container that will shortly be heading out to Gambia to await her arrival there in November?

And that ‘beyond’ wouldn’t just mean across Nottinghamshire and the UK but all the way to Australia?!

Still reeling from the response, Janice will be back on the show next weekend to describe the impact the venture will have on the lives of all the Gambian girls and women who will soon be wearing their first ever bras.

Joining her next Sunday will be Sylvia Morgan, founder of the New Life Children’s Centres charity. She’ll be giving June an insight into the work it does, providing a future for more than 1,300 children by giving them access to free education and health care and offering outreach programmes to the local communities for hundreds more children and families.

Tune in or listen online from 10am to hear what Janice and Sylvia have to say…

One thing’s for sure, there’ll be a huge ‘thank you’ in there somewhere from them both to everyone whose generosity has made this appeal such a resounding success.
