Look Good Feel Better workshops
Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is a charity that runs workshops across the UK helping men and women cope with the physical and emotional side effects of cancer treatment. Sessions are available in-person and online.
Working in partnership
Big C is proud to work in partnership with LGFB to offer these workshops in our Norwich Big C Centre to help boost the emotional wellbeing of those going through cancer.
The workshops, which are currently held every month, are led by trained volunteers who will provide advice on issues relating to skincare, shaving and make-up which often include colour correction, dry skin and loss of eyebrows and eyelashes.
The advice given is practical and demonstrated using products donated by the charity’s corporate partners and teaches the skills and tips to counteract these concerns.
In addition to the practical support and learning, the group sessions provide a relaxed, fun and safe environment for shared experiences which can be beneficial as those under going treatment can find it easier to talk to others in a similar situation.
Men’s LGFB workshops
These group workshops provide expert advice on skincare during and post treatment; tips for shaving safely during treatment along with general grooming; the importance of sun protection, and how to deal with scars.
They are a great way to meet others on a similar journey to share experiences and ideas with. Everybody attending is gifted with a bag of full size skincare and grooming products to try out during the workshop and take home with them.
Women’s LGFB workshops
These sessions offer step by step advice on skincare and makeup application to complete a natural, radiant look.
Learn practical tips and techniques, including how to enhance sparse eyebrows or loss of eyelashes, to help you look and feel like you again.
“I don’t think it’s just about putting makeup on people, it’s about bringing people together and giving them a really lovely time, where you feel very special. You feel very looked after.”LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER PARTICIPANT
