Charity Look Good Feel Better has launched an appeal for Level 2-trained beauty therapists to host workshops in their local area for people undergoing cancer treatment.
As a member of the Look Good Feel Better Regional Volunteer Appeal, therapists will be required to host a two-hour workshop teaching people useful skills and techniques for managing the side effects of cancer treatment, such as skin changes or loss of eyebrows and lashes.
The sessions have been proven to have a transformational impact on people’s confidence and self-esteem levels. “We’re in desperate need of more volunteers with qualifications in beauty - even if you can only spare a few hours,” said Lisa Curtis, director of programme services for Look Good Feel Better. “The workshops are tremendously rewarding. If you really want to make a difference this year, please do get in touch.”
The charity’s workshop programme is currently offered in more than 140 hospitals and cancer centres across the UK. Therapists can sign up at lgfb.co.uk
