The Sara Lee Trust is proud to announce a brand new partnership with Look Good Feel Better (LGFB), the only international cancer support charity providing practical support for people struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment.
After the shock of being diagnosed with cancer, many people can be devastated by the challenging side-effects of their treatment, some of which can dramatically change their appearance and body image - loss of hair, eyebrows and eyelashes can be particularly difficult to cope with.
Kerry Evans, Services Manager for the Sara Lee Trust, said, “We are delighted to be working with Look Good Feel Better who offer beauty workshops and masterclasses to teach people how to manage some of the visible side-effects of their cancer treatment in a practical and positive way.
To be able to offer these services to people in Hastings and Rother, we are asking trained beauty specialists to volunteer their time and expertise to help with simple skincare and make-up skills. By volunteering just a few times a year, you could really make a difference to someone’s life.”

The support I was given surpassed expectations, especially as it was such a vulnerable time. I like to think they saved me from going through the extreme trauma alone. Family and friends are supportive but having a therapist/counsellor who had the knowledge, expertise and skill appertaining to a life threatening disease was life saving emotionally.
