Our aim is to gift some time out in beautiful surroundings on the Norfolk Broads and to provide relaxation and a space to breath away from everyday life. We are offering a wonderful complimentary holistic two day retreat to people who are dedicated to putting others before themselves. It includes accommodation, all meals, one therapy of choice, one group workshop and lots of time and space to relax and enjoy.

The Thank You retreat is being run at Breathing Space, in the lovely Norfolk Broads. Breathing Space is donating the use of the property, all other costs are fully Breathing Spacesupported from fundraising activities at The Missing Sock near Cambridge – in particular from Kindahappy Festival in 2014 for the first year of retreats. We can provide a car pick up service from Hoveton railway station (the nearest station to the retreat) if required. The retreat is for the named person only. If this person is a carer unfortunately we are unable to provide provision for, or respite cover for the person they are caring for.

Being an unpaid carer and devotee can be a positive experience, but it can also be physically and emotionally challenging. This could include helping or looking after a relative or friend who is frail, disabled, suffering from mental or emotional issues, or any other needs requiring dedicated support. Caring for animals can be as demanding as that for humans hence we are looking for nominations from all aspects of life welfare.


Many people choose not to describe themselves as a carer – it’s just something they do for someone they care about. This is your opportunity to do something for them.

If you know of a suitable candidate for this treat (either male or female), please send us their details by completing the nomination form below. Please note this invitation is for those over the age of 18 years and the person nominated needs to be fit and able to look after themselves (the period property of Breathing Space is on various levels with difficult access).

If you require further information, a paper nomination form (which can also be picked up from the Missing Shoe in Norwich) or dates for the next retreat, please email: daphne@missingkind.org
