Nirvana Spa Experience for Carers

For WBDM members only

We are organising a relaxing spa evening break for carers on Tuesday 3rd or Thursday 5th October at Nirvana Spa, Mole Road, Sindlesham, Wokingham, RG41 5DJ.

Wokingham Borough Council and Bracknell Forest Council have provided some funding for this respite break for our member Carers. In addition Nirvana Spa has given us a discount which has enabled us to offer our members the chance to spend the evening relaxing in this beautiful setting.

We have 16 evening spa places available at £10 each.

This includes use of towels and robes, use of facilities, a light meal and all soft drinks, tea, coffee etc. We know the demand for these places will be high so to ensure fairness names will be drawn out of a hat. Evening spa visitors should arrive at 5.30pm and can stay until 10.15pm.

For more information email us or telephone 0300 777 8539.
