THE Village Osteopaths in Timperley Village, has raised £264 for JDRF – The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The fundraiser, held on December 12, raised money through donations given for osteopathic consultations, 10 minute massages, a cake sale and a raffle.

JDRF funds various research projects to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Collette Nelstrop, principal osteopath, said: “It was a fantastic day enjoyed by everyone and it really caps off a successful second year for us.

“We’re a family owned clinic and finding a cure for type 1 diabetes is close to our hearts because our daughter is a type 1 diabetic.

“It was our second Birthday – having opened in November 2013 – and we have raised money for different local charities in the past so we wanted to shift focus this time and help a cause close to our hearts.”
