Knowles Trust Project
…thanks to you and all at Munro Health for your including the tenants of Ernest Harriss House in the programme
of alternative health treatment. This has been well received and greatly appreciated by all 11 of the Ernest Harriss
House tenants, the two tenants from Perin House and including the older people from the local community who took part. Mrs Blach, Mr Piper and Mr Ganguly have all expressed their thanks and appreciation
of the sessions and talked of how they have benefitted and are feeling better.
Mrs Blach was practically house bound but
has even started going down to the Chair Exercise class every Wednesday here as a result of the therapy she received.
She is a lot more mobile and very happy. Mr Ganguly said he was having trouble lifting his right arm but is finding it a lot
more flexible now. Mr Piper also speaks of the relief he feels since having his treatments and is sad that they are
coming to an end.
I hope that future funding will be made available to Munro Health so that the tenants and the
local community can continue to benefit from these treatments.
