Funds raised for Norfolk midwifery unit by Orange Grove Clinic event at The Forum in Norwich

There was �165 raised for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's Midwifery Led Birthing Unit (MLBU) at The Forum in Norwich this weekend.

The Orange Grove Clinic, based on St John's Alley, held it's 'Really Good Health Show' on Saturday, with a range of different treatments on offer at �5 for 20 minutes.

This included; massage, reflexology, shiatsu, acupuncture, osteopathic back and posture checks, allergy and hormone testing, homeopathy and nutrition advice.

Organiser, Jackie Heffer-Cooke, said: 'It was really good, lots of people came to see what we were doing.

'The MLBU really needs things like birthing balls and other quite essential stuff for births that they need. We wanted to do something tangible that we know the money would be used for, rather than just sunk into a well of money.'

Details of many other treatments and health issues were also available at the show, which was held between 10am and 5pm. It followed an event at The Orange Grove Clinic the weekend before which raised �175 for mental health charity MIND.
