Sam Beare Hospice welcomes spa and relaxation day

This Is Local London: Pamper day: Sam Beare Hospice Pamper day: Sam Beare Hospice

Day patients at Sam Beare Hospice enjoyed being pampered as part of a spa and relaxation day.

A two hour masterclass, led by cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better, saw beauty professionals explain skincare and make-up regimes.

The day aimed to improve the wellbeing and confidence of people undergoing cancer treatment, improve self-confidence and allow them to meet others undergoing similar treatment.

Lucia Villalobes, who was visiting for the first time, said: "I am quite an independent person and attending the hospice had not really been on my radar, but I received information about the spa day and thought it was something different.

"I am not really used to wearing make-up, but it was good to have a go and you can certainly see the difference."

Other sessions planned for patients include more relaxation sessions, managing fatigue and breathlessness and memory folder workshops.
