Willowbridge Branch Newsletter August 2021

Branch Newsletter Image

A happy hello from all of us at “Team Willows”. It’s downhill till the end of 2021 and for many of you, with this year’s peaks and troughs, that may feel like a blessing. Remember, we’re in this together and we remain focused, and excited to keep walking a journey of good health and happiness with you. 

Our Centre News

We are excited about the opening of so many new stores at the Willowbridge Centre, as well as Yuppie Chef’s relocation close to Woolworths.  Four Walls has recently opened opposite Skin Renewal, and we have the best view of their beautiful interiors and solid wood furniture.  Mr Price Home will be the next store to be added to the centre. And - a little tip from us - if you need a gorgeous gift, we recommend a visit to Hometown. We do love our design-rich neighbourhood!

Our Health Mantra

"You are your home. Take care of yourself.”

During these challenging times, it’s essential for all of us, including our staff members, to take care of ourselves. Leading a healthy lifestyle and connecting with nature is the best medicine for the soul.

With our fast-paced lives, it’s become imperative to live (and maintain) healthier existences. There are many ways to stay resilient during these stressful times that we are facing. Connecting with nature, including exercise as part of your daily routine (simply going for a walk), or just going outside to soak up some sunlight are ways to feel more in tune with what your body needs.

Our Team and their outdoor therapy

Therapist Mari Roux loves nature and the outdoors. She loves hiking, going for walks and jogs regularly. She believes this form of meditation relaxes the mind and energises the spirit.

Therapist Candice Louis recently visited her hometown Mtunzini, KZN. All of us were in awe of the beautiful countryside she grew up in. Candice just loves walks along the riverbanks of the Mlalazi River, and boat rides with her Dad.

Therapist Lorraine Winshaw believes in quality time with her family. She recently went on a well-deserved break with her Mom to the Kruger National Wildlife Park. There she had the privilege of experiencing amazing views and breathtaking sunsets with her mother by her side.

Our work with the Street Store

Please help us to help the most vulnerable in the Mother City this Heritage Day on 24 September.

Call 2 Care Ladles of Love, and My Desert Rose have joined forces to host The Street Store Collaboration. A donation-driven "shop" will be set up for one day for homeless individuals to come and find clothing and blankets of their choice in a dignified way in the heart of Cape Town.

We're looking for all donations, big or small, to help us fill the store. Anything from blankets to hoodies, shoes, and jeans, to baby clothes and everything in between.

Donations can be dropped into Donation Boxes situated outside Woolworths and PNP Clothing Willowbridge and Centre Management located on P1 below Woolworths. Let's warm up the Mother City this winter and celebrate our wonderful people this Heritage Day. For more information on how you can help, go to https://www.call2care.org.za/street-store-collaboration-2021

Our Top Skin Treatment: Meet Profhilo

There's a new injectable available to help with anti-ageing, and it’s making big waves in the industry. It also means big results. We are incredibly excited about the launch of Profhilo® at Skin Renewal as it remodels skin laxity, combats a crepe-like texture and enhances the strength and overall condition of the skin.

Our #WasteNotWantNot approach

Skin Renewal is all about sustainability and recycling. For July, we joined the global challenge (Plastic Free July) to refuse single-use plastics. 

Want to join us into August and beyond?

Start with one commitment: bring your own reusable coffee, travel mug or flask for your favourite takeaway beverage.

Willowbridge centre has also started implementing waste segregation and sent all tenants guidelines on how this process works. It is really simple and easy to follow. Recycling bins can now be located all over Willowbridge for the community and tenants to join in on this wonderful initiative.

Team Changes

Sadly, a few familiar faces will be leaving “Team Willows”, and two new skin gurus will be joining us.

Charlé Grobler, currently with the Cape Quarter branch, will be returning home to Willowbridge. And, Jené, our Assistant Manager currently with Willowbridge, is rejoining the Stellenbosch branch.

Charleen, our Manager, will be leaving to manage the Constantia Branch, and Marzet Cronje, Manager of the Constantia Branch will now be managing our team. Here we grow again! 

Branch Newsletter Image

Charleen started with the Willowbridge branch as a therapist and soon climbed the career ladder, becoming Branch Manager soon after.

Her friendly and sparkling personality will surely be missed, but her memory of being a Willowbridgette, will be forever cherished. The Constantia team is fortunate to have her, and we wish her nothing but the best in her new role.

Jené has been with Skin Renewal since 2018. SO many branches and patients have loved her friendly smile and caring nature.

Now it’s Stellenbosch’s turn to get her magic touch and vibrant energy. We will miss her and wish her a wonderful journey with her new team.

Branch Newsletter Image

Charlé started with the Willowbridge branch. She did therapy for a short period before realising her actual calling was being upfront at the desk. In 2019 she joined the management team at the Cape Quarter Branch and now returns to her Willowbridge family, who all missed her dearly. 

Charlé enjoys family time and being with her two fur kiddies. She has a very exciting time ahead as she recently got engaged and will start with wedding planning soon. We are so happy to have you back, Charlé!
