Following on the success of last year’s well-attended Expo, St Francis Animal Rescue is hosting another ‘Summer Wellness’ Expo at The Links Golf Club on Saturday November 4th, from 10h00 am until 17h00.

If you’re a practitioner in the beauty and health and wellness industry, this is an ideal opportunity to promote your brand to a captive audience of up to 300 visitors. Stands are selling fast at R350 each, so if you’re keen to participate, book yours soonest.

We’ve tapped into some interesting new developments in health, fitness and well-being and specialist treatments on show this year include: Iridology, Kinesiology, Lipo-Sculpting, Organic Heart Health, Body Stress Release, Hypnotherapy-  as well as reflexology, deep tissue massage and physiotherapy.

Five upmarket beauty salons will offer a diverse range of exciting new treatments and beauty products along with facials makeovers and mini-manicures.  Fitness is covered through yoga, karate, dance and pilates demos – and personal trainers will be on hand to offer one-on-one advice to those seeking a more active lifestyle.

You’re going to love our gorgeous floral displays, jewellery and summer leisure clothing – all designed to boost your sense of happiness and confidence.

Choose from a host of delicious, healthy meal options from the Clubhouse Chef and his team and, just this once, pass on coffee in favour of freshly prepared nutritious smoothies and fruit juices.

Don’t miss this Expo – immerse yourself in health, fitness and beauty, interact with practitioners and question cutting edge technologies to find out what wellness routines and modalities work best for you.

All proceeds from this Expo go towards funding St Francis Animal Rescue’s ‘Open Your Eyes & Sterilize’ campaign created to sterilize the cats and dogs of our own Sea Vista township and prevent the birth of unwanted kittens and puppies and the neglect and cruelty that stems from this.

So far this year, St Francis Animal Rescue has sterilized well over 250 cats and dogs – and the numbers keep climbing. In addition, we provide food for hungry pets, vaccinate new-born pups and kittens, and offer wound care and medical treatment for animals in need. Our kennel distribution program is ongoing and, at each weekly outreach, we provide blankets, food bowls, collars and leashes whenever we can.

Please help us to help them.
