Look Good Feel Better

Sign up and SWALK to support people facing cancer in Sussex

Cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better is encouraging everyone to join SWALK, its sponsored walk on Sunday 19 May 2024 to raise funds for people living with cancer in Sussex.

Participants can sign up for a 10km Mighty March or a 3km Steady Stroll in the beautiful surroundings of the stunning 3,500-acre wildland project, Knepp Estate, West Sussex.  Proceeds will go to the charity.

The charity is delighted to announce a brand new partnership with UKLASH, the world’s # 1 rated Eyelash, Brow and Hair Growth Serum brand which has signed up as headline sponsor of the event.

Nima Pourian, UKLASH Founder, says:

“Look Good Feel Better is a cause close to our hearts at UKLASH, and we are delighted to walk alongside them at SWALK to help raise donations for such a worthy cause.”

Kate Wydra, who lives near Horsham, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021. Now in recovery, Kate has signed up to take part in SWALK. She explains:

“Being diagnosed with cancer was such a shock. When the diagnosis was confirmed, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. Throughout the treatment, I tried to keep positive, but ultimately, during the chemotherapy, I lost my hair, eyelashes, and eyebrows: I lost my identity.   I couldn’t bear to look at myself in the mirror and I simply didn’t feel like myself anymore.

 “I was told about cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better which provides unique support to cancer patients undergoing treatment and helps them deal with the side effects.  I attended their Skincare & Make-up, and Hand & Nail Care workshops and never looked back.

 “Just being among all these women who looked just like me helped me so much. All the advice and tips were so useful.  It was brilliant to be shown how to use make-up to look and feel better again. It was the perfect boost at a very dark time. I would encourage everyone to sign up to SWALK, have a great day out with friends and family, and know that you are helping people facing cancer in the area.”

Ian Daniels, Look Good Feel Better’s Director of Fundraising, explains:

“Each year, around 3,000 people living in Sussex will be given a cancer diagnosis, so our services are needed more than ever.  Whether you are an individual, a family, a group of friends, or even a local company, sign up and get involved in what promises to be a fantastic day out.”

All adult SWALKERS who cross the finish line will receive a charity beauty goodie bag worth over £50 and child SWALKERS will receive a goodie bag of treats.
