"Just had a wonderful and helpful afternoon at the Robert Ogden Centre at St James Hospital, everyone was happy and helpful. We came out laughing and feeling normal and our self-confidence was tip top. I cannot thank you all enough. Thank You, Susan x"
**BEAUTY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - URGENT**
We would not be able to run our services if it wasn’t for our amazing volunteers.
We are URGENTLY searching for more #beauty trained #volunteers who can help us to run our Workshops in the Maggie’s Centre Western General Hospital in #Edinburgh. Without more volunteers we may have to reduce the frequency of services, which we don’t want to do as it’s such an important venue for us.
If you or someone you know has experience in skincare or the application of make-up and would be happy to volunteer a few hours to help women living with cancer then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01372 747 500.
Please share and tag anyone that you think might be able to help.
We are so excited to tell you all that @womensrunninguk have proudly announced Look Good Feel Better as their regional charity partner for their Women’s Running #RaceSeries this summer.

Take a look at our website news section to find out how you can be involved…
"Today I attended the Look Good Feel Better Workshop at Maggie's Manchester and am pleased I made the effort despite having chemo yesterday. I felt a great sense of achievement and the ladies attending and demonstrating were so lovely. The centre is beautiful and calm and very welcoming. Just a huge thank you for making my day special xxxx" Thank you Jenny, you look fantastic

"Hi, my name is Roxanne and I participated in your workshop yesterday at the Park Centre, Brighton. Just wanted to say an enormous Thank You to Sara Pankhurst and Nikki for a wonderful, informative, fun morning. It is such a great way to facilitate raising self-esteem, looking glam and meeting other ladies who have had or have or are receiving treatment for Cancer. There was lots of laughter and compliments flying around the room!! We all exchanged numbers and aim to meet up again soon. Thank you once again for helping me feel like the "old" me. What an inspiring charity you are. " Thank you so much Roxanne for sharing your fab pictures with us!
