I will use the money to fit flooring in the rehab/mindfulness room of the shop along with completing the accessible toilet, popping some mirrors on the wall and adding some equipment that will be for the use of any customers.

My name is Cerys, and I'm a level 5 advanced Sports Therapist. I've worked in this role for about 5 years now and absolutely love it. Some days I'll be with 1-on-1 customers the whole day, others I'll be getting soaked through pitchside at the rugby and others I'll be cheering in tired runners and rubbing down legs to raise funds for charity. It varies so much day to day and I love working in my community.

Over a year ago now I made the very last minute decision to sell my lovely home in order to buy a shop and flat right in the middle of town where I could create a warm, welcoming space that would suit all of my customers accessibility needs.

Its been a long, hard slog and while I definitely thought I'd considered the absolutely worst case scenarios before buying, it turned out I hadn't. While removing all the interior walls and ceillings we found dry rot in the supporting beams. And by that I mean the beams were sawdust and the walls were beginning to move. A shoddy survey and some bad luck has basically meant that the budget has mostly gone on structural work and trying to stem the constant flow of a waterfall down the back wall - which I've now become sort of fond of. The sound of water is therapeutic, right?

Anyway, the long and short of it is that I'm at the stage where we're on the cosmetics and its exciting and I'm so nearly ready to open. But the current situation is that I can open the treatment room side of the shop but not the rehab room and accessible toilet and I just don't have the funds to finish them right now. Its not a big job, but frankly I've begged and borrowed all the money to get this far and have not a penny left.

So this is where you come in. Obviously I'm not asking for money for nothing, I'm just asking that perhaps you might consider buying in advance so I can use the money to finish up properly and create somewhere nice and shiny for you to have your appointment at a later date. The funds from this will go into a floor for the rehab gym/mindfulness area of the shop as well as the accessible toilet, along with mirrors for the wall and some equipment too that all my customers will be able to access.

Any help is hugely appreciated and I'll be doing big 'thank you's on social media too x
