Pakistan Flood Relief Fundraiser
Please join us to support those affected in Pakistan by the devastating floods this year. Millions have been left homeless and vulnerable to hunger and illness due to the widespread loss of crops, livestock, vital health facilities and the threat of waterborne diseases.
To help us raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee Pakistan Floods Appeal, you are invited to a day full of treats in the serene surroundings of the Spanda Studio at Harbour House, Kingsbridge.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
9.45am - Arriving
10 to 10.30am - Settling and Opening Meditation:
A mindful moment of reflection to set our intentions for the day.
10.45 to 11.45am - Yoga :
Join Georgina for a restorative yoga session focussed on expanding our hearts and extending peace and loving kindness to all beings. No yoga experience necessary and this session is suitable for all abilities.
12 to 12.45pm - Sound Bath:
Join Helen for a deeply nourishing experience being bathed in beautiful sounds and vibrations. Press pause and settle down into a place of relaxation and rest.
1pm - Lunch
Bring your own or enjoy a delicious bowl of vegan soup and bread for a donation on the day.
2 to 3.30pm - Auction of Local Art
Browse beautiful artworks by some very talented local artists who are donating their pieces for the auction. Bid for something for your own home or a gift for someone else (we are heading into gift buying season!)
Our auction is a silent auction, which just means you can bid anonymously on paper if you wish. You'll be given a bidding number when you come in.
The day will close with sweet treats and nibbles inspired by Pakistani puddings, prepared by some fabulous local chefs.

We hope you can join us for the whole day and enjoy a restful morning of wellbeing followed by a fun afternoon with our auction of local art and sweet treats. However, there are some options if you would like to join in but can't make the whole day:

~If you would like to come along just for the afternoon auction, this is free to attend, please select the Auction Only ticket option.
~ If you can't make the whole morning of wellbeing sessions you may book in either for our yoga session or sound bath session for £10 each - see booking options. There will be 15 minutes between sessions to come in and get settled.
We can't wait to see you there!

About the appeal:
Since June of this year, Pakistan has experienced extreme heavy rainfall as much as 5 times the 30 year average in the worst hit areas. The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called it a "climate catastrophe" as flash floods have caused devastation across the country, submerging over one third of the country under water, destroying 2 million homes and leaving 6 million people in urgent need of help.
Huge areas of agricultural land have been affected with 3.6 million acres of crops swept away and 1 million livestock killed - resulting in many people going hungry in the longer term. There is also a high risk from water-borne diseases spreading in affected areas and many secondary health disasters.
The Disasters Emergency Committee is co-ordinating a response to provide funds to the aid agencies working in challenging conditions to meet people’s basic needs such as food, clean water and shelter.
