About the Old Mill Foundation
In 1998 Sarah and Steve Clark purchased Meyricks Mill, a beautiful former flour mill that is over 500 years old, in Penclawdd. Sarah began a successful complementary therapy and education centre from home. In the early part of 2002 Steve, aged 42, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer…
Sarah naturally wanted to help Steve as much as possible and although medical intervention was unable to cure Steve, he and Sarah found that holistic therapies such as massage, reflexology and reiki helped to relieve some of his symptoms. Steve sadly died in 2002.
During the next few months, Sarah came to realise she was in a good position to help others going through similar situations with this disease. Not only could holistic therapies bring relief to peoples symptoms, they also gave the opportunity for people to have a caring, one to one contact which is so important in getting through tough times. Sarah was also acutely aware that the carers were also suffering greatly as it is one of the worst things in the world to watch a loved one suffer. So she felt it was important to help them too. She thought that she and Steve’s experience could be invaluable in helping others. She knew that there were still good days and happy events for people to share together while living with cancer. She also knew that not everybody with cancer would die. Plenty of people actually get better, but would love to have some help along the way.
Using this experience, Sarah decided to set up a charity to help people with cancer from her house. The old Mill was born.
The Old Mill Foundation offer their services free of charge to those living with cancer, and so welcome any help that you can offer. Whether it may be fundraising, housekeeping, or can offer any therapies they would love to hear from you.
