“To each and every amazing Farmers customer and Club Member, thank you for getting behind July’s Feel Better Month.
Your incredible support has blown away everyone connected to the charity. Whether you supported a participating brand, made a donation at the till, had a mini makeover or purchased butterfly nail files – you collectively made sure that classes in over 37 communities in New Zealand continue to benefit. Because of you, coming together to Do Good, Feel Good, your incredible generosity means any person with any cancer at any stage of treatment anywhere in New Zealand is able to experience a free Feel Better Class in their community. You are truly amazing.
The Farmers community has shown, once again, the dedication you have in supporting cancer patients of any age, and stage of their cancer to have the opportunity to face their cancer with more confidence, control, and a sense of normality. As you read this today it is possible that somewhere in New Zealand a class is being held and has in part been made possible due to your generosity.
You are helping people like this recent participant who wrote in and said “I am so grateful to the volunteers and sponsors who made this event possible. Thank you so much, it helped make a terrible time bearable. Thank you.”
Over the coming months please look for news on how your donations have been put to a very tangible use. From the team at Look Good Feel Better and on behalf of all those who will directly benefit from your support, a big thank you.”
General Manager, Look Good Feel Better NZ
Thank you to all our beauty brands for their contributions to Look Good Feel Better month.
The team at Look Good Feel Better run free classes that give information and guidance to help them face their cancer with confidence – because how we look on the outside affects how we feel on the inside. You've helped put a smile on the face of someone touched by cancer today.
Look Good Feel Better charity has been running programmes for women and teens for 26 years and now with the help of Foundation Partner, Farmers Club, we are able to offer a unique workshop, free for men undergoing cancer treatment.
Three key tutors have led the pilot for the last 18 months and with feedback from participants have culminated in the programme development. This is a private space, but also a chance for men undergoing the same experiences, to feel empowered and in control.
Participants will also have a specialist Physio, who will talk about the benefits of movement and exercise, whilst undergoing treatment and advice on practical things that can be done to assist and to keep mobility.
