Women undergoing treatment for cancer have the opportunity to attend a free ‘Look Good Feel Better’ workshop at the Robert Horrell Macmillan Centre at Peterborough City Hospital.

The first workshop is being held on Thursday 19 March from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

It is the first of many workshops which are designed to improve the wellbeing and confidence of patients undergoing treatment.

All the women will receive a gift bag full of donated beauty products and trained volunteer beauticians will take them through a 12-step skincare and make-up regime, created specifically to help women combat the visible side effects of their treatment.

They will also be taught tips and techniques to help with changes to the skin and eyebrow and eyelash loss.

Sue Barham, lead cancer nurse, said: “We would like to thank Look Good Feel Better for allowing us to host the workshops.

“It offers women the opportunity to take some time out to focus upon themselves and meet others in similar situations.”

Sarahjane Robertson, Look Good Feel Better’s executive director, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our workshops at Peterborough Hospital – these valuable sessions will provide an enormous confidence boost to women going through cancer treatment.

“They leave the sessions looking fantastic and feeling like they are ready to face the world again.”

The workshops will be held on the third Thursday of every month between 10.30am and 12.30pm.
