Cancer Charity Issues Urgent Appeal for Volunteers from the Beauty Industry

Leading cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) has launched an urgent appeal for qualified beauty industry professionals to support people undergoing treatment for cancer.  

The charity is specifically looking for qualified beauty therapists, skincare specialists and make-up artists to volunteer to use their skills to help support the charity’s workshops.

LGFB organises workshops held virtually, as well as in hospitals and Cancer Care Centres throughout the UK.  Aimed at people undergoing treatment for cancer, it provides practical make-up and skincare tips, as well as advice about changes to skin, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, nails and body confidence.  These sessions are all held in a safe environment and are proven to help attendants regain their confidence and feel better about themselves.

Chantelle McSweeney, who started volunteering recently, says: “Taking part has been an incredible experience. It is so rewarding to see how my beauty experience can help people feel better about themselves.  The charity was really supportive and flexible, accommodating my busy schedule - so that was not a problem at all. They provided all the training that I needed and let me watch what they did at first to ensure it was the right fit for me, which reassured me and offered peace of mind.  The workshops bring together like-minded people and the atmosphere is truly uplifting.  I am so pleased that I decided to give it a go and would recommend it to anyone looking to make a real difference, even if you only have a few hours to spare over the year.”

LGFB is seeking people over 18 with a professional qualification (NVQ level 2+ or equivalent) and 1+ years’ experience in skincare and/or make-up. The minimum input is nine hours a year, particularly in the following locations:
