Especially for Carers - reduced price holiday - £400 Off

As many of you know I have been running my annual retreats at Grue Demoiselle for many years. This year we are focussing it a bit differently. Catherine Jameson and I now both have "Caring" roles and we have discovered how demanding this role is and how little time there is left for "ME TIME". To this end we have decided to offer a special Holiday for Carers at a much reduced price especially for carers. Normally a week at Grue Demoiselle would be £1000, this "Caring for the Carers" week is only £600.  So whatever type of Carer you are, Professional Carer, Nurse, or Caring for family and friends, YOU deserve a break and at £400 off, come and be pampered.
