mynewhair has proudly joined forces with the only international cancer support charity. Both charities have come together thanks to their commitment to helping those affected by cancer look and feel better.
The national charity, mynewhair, was founded and inspired by professional stylist Trevor Sorbie MBE, and is celebrating its 10th anniversary. mynewhair provides advice and support to anyone who has experienced medical hair loss, and has a national support network of independent salons and trained hair professionals who provide a wig-customisation service for their clients.
Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) provides practical support for women and teenagers struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment. The charity offers free skincare and make-up workshops and master classes all over the UK for people undergoing treatment for any type of cancer. The two-hour sessions are led by trained beauty volunteers, who share tips and techniques to help with eyebrow and eyelash loss and changes to the skin.
The new relationship between the two charities will involve signposting to services and mutual promotion via websites and social media. Trevor Sorbie MBE said:
We are absolutely delighted to have established this exciting new relationship with Look Good Feel Better. They are a charity that share our core values, and like mynewhair, want to help those affected by cancer to feel confident, proud and beautiful.
There is a lot to look forward to as this relationship develops, which will benefit both those who we support as well as those who deliver our services. We hope that by working together we can reach everyone across the UK who needs our help, advice and support.
Anyone who is part of mynewhair’s national support network of independent salons with skincare/make-up experience will be given the opportunity to be involved with the LGFB programme of workshops and master classes in the future.
Lisa Curtis, Head of Programme Services at Look Good Feel Better comments:
Feeling good about how you look has such an impact on self-esteem. Both Look Good Feel Better and mynewhair support people during some of the most difficult times in their lives. Working together will enable us to reach thousands more and give them a much needed confidence boost.
