Abergavenny Library will link with charity Look Good Feel Better to offer a master class on beauty advice to support people living with cancer.  This event takes place on Monday 23rd May from 10am to 12noon and is hosted by the Macmillan in Monmouthshire Cancer Information and Support Service which has information areas in all of the council’s libraries and community hubs.  The service also offers cancer information sessions and various activity groups.

Founded in the UK 21 years ago, Look Good Feel Better specifically helps women combat the visible side effects of cancer treatment.  Its two hour master class features volunteer beauty professionals taking patients through a specially designed skincare and make-up regime, helping to improve their wellbeing, confidence, self-image and appearance while bringing them together with others in a similar situation.

Volunteers carry a set of skincare products that can be shared hygienically by the group, but those attending the master class will be asked to provide colour products such as foundation, eye shadow, lip stick and mascara.  Each person attending will be provided with full information on what to bring.

For details of the master class contact Abergavenny Library on 01873 735980 or Erica Sheppard, the Macmillan in Monmouthshire Coordinator – macmillan@monmouthshire.gov.uk – telephone 07826 876772.
