Look Good Feel Good
A national charity, ‘Look Good Feel Better’ works in partnership with the Health Board to provide free beauty workshops for women undergoing treatment for all types of cancer once every six weeks.
The workshops are open to women of all ages undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.
Each session is led by trained beauty volunteers who teach women cosmetic skills linked to the side effects of cancer treatment, such as how to cope with changes to the skin as well as drawing on missing eyebrows and eyelashes.
“Workshops bring women together for an afternoon filled with laughter and friendship and they leave with a much needed confidence boost.”
Workshops are currently based in Prestatyn and held once every six weeks from 6-8pm.

Lingerie (Breast Cancer Patients)
For more confidence when choosing a bra after surgery, breast cancer patients are invited to join other women who have had breast cancer at Lingerie Evenings organised by Breast Cancer Care. They offer a practical guide to what to look for in a bra, an opportunity to be fitted and a chance to see how the lingerie looks on volunteer models who have all had breast cancer.
Held in Clare’s Department store, Llandudno, the Lingerie Evening takes place when the store has closed so it’s a safe, relaxed environment where you can meet others in a similar situation and share experiences.
