CANCER patients are set to benefit from free pamper workshops at Leighton Hospital.

‘Look Good Feel Better,’ has launched its 99th workshop at Leighton Hospital.

The workshops provide practical support for people struggling with the visible effects of cancer treatment.

The confidence-boosting workshops started at the hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Unit on February 7 and are set to run every other month.

The workshops, led by beauty volunteers, guide women through a 12-step make-up programme, including techniques to help with eyebrow and eyelash loss and changes to their skin.

The charity also offers teen and young adult workshops and will launch support services for men later in 2018.

Sarah Addis, Regional Manager for Look Good Feel Better, said: “We are so pleased to be able offer our patients the opportunity to come along to the Look Good Feel Better workshops at Leighton Hospital.

“The difference in confidence the workshop and the team have on all the ladies is very rewarding for all those involved.

“As well as feeling pampered, the workshops give the ladies a chance to meet and chat to others that have either been through or going through a similar experience in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.”
