On Saturday 20th March 2021, Essex based company Basking Babies will host a FREE Virtual Charity Marathon Day with a timetable packed full of free, live online Baby Massage, Baby Yoga and Baby Reflexology courses with all donations from the day going to MIND UK.
The charity massage-thon will take place live from the Basking Babies UK Facebook page which is freely accessible all day to everyone, no matter where they are based. The day starts at 10am with hourly sessions throughout the day, including a tummy massage to relieve trapped wind and colic, a session just for dads and finishing at 7pm with a bedtime massage session.
The sessions are free, but the Basking Babies team just ask that those of you that get involved make a donation to Mind on our Just Giving page. Mind is a charity committed to supporting people’s mental health and wellbeing, and Basking Babies hope this special Event can provide vital funds to aid their amazing work.
Basking Babies and the 13 franchisees are proud to be hosting the live online event that people can join in with from the comfort of their own home. The events follow the success of a similar Virtual Charity Day hosted last year in which £825 was raised for the GOSH Never Far Away: Essex Appeal.
Basking Babies Founder and CEO Carla Davison said: “You can join us online for just one class, or the whole day, no matter where you are located or the age of your baby there will be something for everyone with a little one at home”.
She added: We want to give people the opportunity to connect with their babies and each other whilst raising vital funds for a charity, whose work is now more important than ever, as more and more people are experiencing mental health issues as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
A full schedule of events will be published on the Basking Babies UK Facebook page in advance of the event and donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/baskingbabiesmind
