Hi there, my name is Dawn and I founded Bury Wholefoods.
It all started back when I was a dancer. I led a strict lifestyle, knowing that to grow in my field of work I needed to be responsible for leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
The career is a short one though and soon it was time that I had to make the brave decision to stop. Injuries from pushing myself to the extremes were becoming all too apparent. In addition, I also developed IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
Years passed where I continued to lead the healthiest lifestyle I could to control my new-found condition: Growing my own vegetables in the garden, hula-hooping my way around the living room and walking for miles and miles along our beautiful Suffolk coastline. Although I was caring for myself, I realised that the environment around me was still suffering.
I needed a detox to spark up innovative ideas. I wanted to trigger new liveliness into the way we live. So, I took myself off to a health retreat and a little break to Cornwall. While there I stumbled across a health food shop, I realised this was what Bury was missing; my concept for Bury Wholefoods was born.
