Visit To the Merlin Centre


A Facility unique to Cornwall which we have support through the years

A Rotarians partener said of Merlin

Visited the Merlin Project down at Hewas Water yesterday with Callington Rotary Club. A very interesting place to visit, it's the only centre in Cornwall that provides relief for people with MS and Parkinson's. They have treatment rooms, a gym and a sensory room which are fully equipped for people with these special requirements. The sensory room is to give people relief from stress and anxieties associated with their illness. They also have oxygen therapy pods, where you sit in, have a mask on, then decompress the air to 30feet. They need funding now for a hydrotherapy pool, to help with clients relief, so if anyone has spare cash it is a worthy cause. They also have conference facilities that they hire out to help raise funds. They get no government funding, so rely on donations and funding from other organisations. I was very impressed by what I saw. The people and volunteers that run this place are amazing, friendly people.
