Needle craft raises cash for charity

AN ACUPUNCTURIST arranged a day of special taster sessions to raise money for a good cause.

Rachael Hardiman, who is based at Batley Resource Centre, introduced 10 new clients to acupuncture, with all of the participants donating £15 to the Jo Cox Foundation.

Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine, where fine needles are inserted at sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.

Rachael said: "As part of National Acupuncture Awareness Week I wanted to raise some money for a local charity, and the Jo Cox Foundation immediately sprang to mind.

"None of the clients had experienced acupuncture before and this was a way to show how painless and relaxing treatment can be. Everyone gave generously and it was a brilliant day."

Batley born and bred, the mother-of-two set up her practice at the Resource Centre in October 2016, offering traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicine appointments.
