“Our aim is to increase their confidence and self-esteem which may have been stolen by this awful disease.

“Our Look Good, Feel Better campaign will see us offer complimentary one-to-one sessions with our make-up artist and hair stylists who will give tips and advice to help people to put that sparkle back in their eyes.

“Let this be a complete escape from all that is going on. ✨

“Please get in touch if yourself, or you know somebody who you think will benefit from our support.”
