Give an Hour Buy an Hour

In 2019 a number of the members came together to Give an Hour to raise funds for The Sparkling Business Club Charity of the year. In 2019 the charity was Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Most of our businesses are community based & we all support our favourite charities through out the year.  Lynnda Worsnop who created the group has been volunteering for Hearing Dogs for over three year and her clients regularly meet one of the dogs when they visit her. She is rarely without a Hearing Dog in her care. 

For this project 10 Sparkling Ladies donated an hour of their time, they all came up with a great offer that allowed you check out their skills at an amazing price for you.

In 2020 the chsrity we are supporting is HER Breast Friends If you would like to give an hour (or two) this year contact Lynnda for more details 



Hearing Dogs change lives. Imagine not being able to hear your alarm clock or the door bell or the telephone. Imagine meeting new people and them not understanding the help you might need. Each Hearing Dog under goes basic training and then is matched to a deaf person & after that their training is personalised to that persons unqiue needs. Helping people communicate and understanding that we are all individuals is something we should all be aware of.

The charity was found at Crufts in 1982 where they began working with rescue dogs. By 2004 they had trained and placed 1,000 dogs. In 1994 they opened their northern training centre near Pocklington. So close to our members it is no wonder we find ourselves involved with them.

Hearing Dogs now breed their own puppies who start the preparation for work at 8 weeks old. They to train over 100 dogs a year. It takes a lot of hours to train each dog to support a deaf person.

With a theme of "Communcations" at this year's A Day To Sparkle we will be welcoming Hearing Dogs for Deaf People to join us on the day so you will have another chance to find out more.

Treatments take place in comfortable surroundings with beautiful aromas, soft candlelight and music to take you away from the everyday to a special place where cares are forgotten for a while.

Linda Hoyland

I’m Linda Hoyland and I have been a complementary therapist for 30 years now. I started out working as a chemist in research and development for the pharmaceutical industry. When I was pregnant I became quite ill and the only thing offered was medication which I really didn’t want as an expectant mum. After having my son I went to Yoga classes and through these, went to a talk on Reflexology. As a scientist I was hugely sceptical, however part of me was intrigued. So I found out more about it and went on to qualify as a reflexologist.

I love working with clients with reflexology and had amazing results, but I realised more could be done and so started looking for something else and eventually found the “holy grail” of therapies – kinesiology!

I love working with kinesiology because it is such a multi-faceted approach that the body really has no option but to change its old unhealthy ways for new happy ones.

I have also added High Touch Acupressure (Jin Shin) to my therapeutic techniques, as well as my unique anti-aging fabulous facials.

The Offer: I am offering 2 new clients the chance to discover the amazing benefits of these therapies for yourself! Choose from a session of either:

  • relaxing reflexology
  • kickstarting kinesiology
  • amazing acupressure
  • or a fabulous facial
  • for only £25!!

(First session is normally £50) This will be donated to The Hearing Dogs charity.

Julie Allison

Julie Allison is an Intuitive Mentor and Healer who helps others to realise and break through their perceived limitations, in every aspect of their life, so that they can become aware of their own unlimited, powerful potential to create the life they desire for themselves and their families. Meditate Your Way To Success!

As an Intuitive, she can show you how to connect with that part of you that is your Ego - the part of us that stops us from doing what we really desire because of fear and resistance (could be fear of failing or fear that others won’t accept us for what we truly are).

The Offer:  Join me in a 2 hour taster Workshop called - Meditate Your Way To Success! to learn the first steps in how to manifest the business and life you want.

In this workshop, learn how it is your Ego that stops you from going in the direction you really desire and keeps holding you back. Learn how the Ego carries limiting beliefs that block you from being your true self. Learn how all those negative thought patterns have created your life, so that you catch those thoughts whenever you say them to yourself, and turn them around to positive thoughts to shape your life differently.

Through meditation (so that we can be still, quiet, and prepared and ready to listen), and a few other techniques, we can connect with our Ego to ask why she is feeling fearful. We can find out where those blocks and limiting beliefs came from. We can find out why certain things are constantly happening in our lives and where the repeated patterns come from. When we realise how we’ve been stopping ourselves, then we can start to change those beliefs.

We will be looking at our businesses, but these same techniques can be applied to all areas of your life.

The Offer  Date: Monday 20th May 2019 at 10.00am   For just 6 people

Venue: Calf House Studios, Cold Harbour Farm, Bishop Burton, Beverley, HU17 8JF

The cost for this is £10 per person. Contact Julie HERE
