Throughout the year we host a number of fundraising events and campaigns that you can get involved with. Whether you want to challenge yourself with a walk, cycle or run or hold your own event during our annual fundraiser, Feel Better Week, we have plenty of ideas on how you can help us support women with cancer.
Thursday 6th December, 7pm
Paternoster Square, London
Starting at St Paul's Cathedral, going over Millenium Bridge and along the river Thames, this year's Santa in the City Run is the perfect way to get you, your friends and your colleagues in the festive spirit.
Show your support for people living with cancer this Christmas by walking, jogging, or running around this city centre course in aid of Look Good Feel Better. No experience needed for this 5K relatively flat course which will take you past some of London's most iconic sites. All entrants receive a free Santa suit (and beard), race number and medal.
You can sign up as a team or an individual and registration is only £23.
We ask that all runners please try and raise a minimum of £50 which will directly fund a place at one of our Workshops, ensuring more people can face cancer with confidence this Christmas. Upon registering you will be provided with a dedicated fundraising pack to help you reach your target.

Now in its 20th year, the Look Good Feel Better Carol Concert returns to the stunning St George’s Church, London on Monday 10th December.

The evening will also see one Look Good Feel Better volunteer receive the Gillian Kirton Award in recognition of their support and dedication to the charity.
Kindly sponsored by our partners M&S Beauty, all money raised from the evening will help Look Good Feel Better continue to run their free confidence-boosting workshops for people living with cancer.

Richard has also written his own Carol which will be performed on the evening, ‘Our Christ is Born Today’, which is sung to the tune of ‘Glory, Glory, Hallelujah’ If you are holding your own Carol Concert or Christmas event why not include this lively new version. In return, Richard asks that you make a small donation to Look Good Feel Better.
During this festive period, we are asking our supporters to come together and help us raise £30,000 which will enable Look Good Feel Better to deliver 60 dedicated Men's Workshops in 2019.
Previously support for men has been very limited, especially regarding advice around coping with the visible side effects of treatment which can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and mental wellbeing. Our 'Skin Fitness' Workshops are designed to provide vital advice to combat the common side effects experienced by men undergoing treatment, including changes to the skin, hair loss, weight change, and oral health. The Workshops will be run by our trained volunteers from the beauty, barber and fashion industry who will share their knowledge and skills to help support men with the side effects they are most affected by.
With your help, we can ensure that for the first time, men too are getting the practical advice and support needed to ensure they can face cancer with confidence. With 183,000 men newly diagnosed every year in the UK, demand for our bespoke Workshops is already significant and we need you and your generosity this Christmas to ensure we can reach those who need us.
