Look Good Feel Better Women’s Online Session
These sessions are run in partnership with the Look Good Feel Better charity and are built to help women cope with the physical and emotional side effects of cancer treatment, through skin care and make-up workshops.
Through these online classes, you’ll be given a variety of information and tips on issues relating to skincare, shaving and make-up which often includes colour correction, dry skin and loss of eyebrows and eyelashes.
Our next session is on Tuesday 11 August from 2.00pm-4.00pm
Connect Over Cuppa Virtual Drop-In Session
Later this month, we will be launching our Connect Over A Cuppa virtual drop-ins, so that those wishing to speak to our support team can join us and others online for a catch up and ask any questions they may have and get support.
