Together, with our customers generosity and staff dedication, nationwide we have raised:
“Thank you seems such a small word to cover the most incredible support. To every Farmers customer who supported July’s Feel Better Month - we are so truly grateful.
Because of you all, free community programmes for any person, facing any cancer, at any time they need us, continue to grow in 38 communities around the country.
Whether you enjoyed the mini makeover, purchased your favourite brand, donated at the till, purchased the butterfly nail files or a compact mirror, you have made a tangible difference in helping someone in New Zealand face their cancer with more confidence.
“Be your own kind of beautiful” was a very special campaign, and by coming together the Farmers community have ensured that at a time when any cancer patient most needs a boost, to connect, to have that one day that is about them – they can register and participate in a Feel Better programme close to where they live or are being treated.
Thank you. On behalf of the almost 3,000 people who will register for a class this year, and all of the team at Look Good Feel Better, thank you, but most importantly a message from one of our recent participants that you have supported.
“It was an amazing experience of genuine concern and care and generosity. Generosity of not only cosmetics but of people's sharing of their time and their knowledge. Wonderful meeting with other women on a similar journey and some on a far more difficult journey than myself. I am extremely grateful for the experience.”
General Manager, Look Good Feel Better
Farmers and participating beauty brands donated $1 from selected products sold during July to the Look Good Feel Better charity.
During Feel Better Month, there were a number of ways you could do good and feel good at your local Farmers store Health and Beauty departments.
Compact Mirror $6
Mini Makeover $5
3-pack of Nail Files $4
On the 13th of July, all our Health & Beauty departments participated in Feel Better Friday!
Each store provided different activities to help you do good and feel good at the same time!
Look Good Feel Better charity has been running programmes for women and teens for 27 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.
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.
