The Lavender Touch – A Historic Timeline of Events
A brief look through the history of Scottish Borders-based charity The Lavender Touch, since it was founded in 2001.
The Lavender Touch
The 10-year anniversary
The Lavender Touch treatment room was opened within the Margaret Kerr Unit. The 10-year anniversary and launch of a book about The Lavender Touch – ‘Moments in Time’ was written and published by Jan Beattie and Sheila Scott. By then, it was estimated we required £35,000 annually to continue our service in the Scottish Borders.
Bamboo Touch sleepwear
Our Bamboo Touch sleepwear range was launched, having worked closely with patient Pauline Birse, whose design and knowledge allowed us to create this unique product to help with debilitating night drenches. The range is now being used by the Margaret Kerr Unit, and Macmillan nurses within NHS Borders.
Natural products developed by clinical aromatherapists, and specially designed to help you or a loved one deal with the side effects of cancer and its treatment.
