Our main annual fundraiser has gone from strength to strength, last year raising over £185,000 for Look Good Feel Better!
It’s a fantastic week which brings everyone together to show their support for the charity and for people living with cancer. From ever-popular cake sales and pink dress-down days, to raffles and sweepstakes at work, to pamper parties or cocktail evenings with friends, everyone can get involved.
This year’s Feel Better Week theme is ‘Do Good, Feel Good’ and we do hope you’ll get involved by requesting your fundraising pack and helping raise money to support our services across the UK. We’ve got heaps of ideas and tips to inspire your fundraising and to help spread the word about Look Good Feel Better.
Feel Better Week packs will be available for request from mid-April.
Feel Better Week would not be the success it is without you and we do hope you’ll put the dates in your diaries and get involved this June.
