Wellington Beauty School Helps Women Look Good & Feel Better

Wellington Beauty School Helping Women Look Good and Feel Better

The Wellington Elite International School of Beauty and Spa Therapies has announced Look Good Feel Better is their charity of choice for the second year running.

Look Good Feel Better is a free nationwide service offered to women participating in a cancer treatment or programme. Through practical workshops, women with cancer are shown how to manage the visible side effects of treatment and regain a sense of control at a time in their lives when they need it most.

Each year Elite International, New Zealand’s largest provider of beauty and spa therapy training in New Zealand, donates proceeds from client days to one deserving charity. This is the first time in the history of the programme that the same charity has been chosen for a second year.

Client days are held twice a week, enabling students to have real life work experience under the supervision of a tutor and clients to receive half price treatments.

Over $10,000 was raised for Look Good Feel Better by Elite International’s client days in 2013.

The partnership with Look Good Feel Better goes beyond donations with students from the beauty school volunteering at Wellington Look Good Feel Better workshops, helping them to learn, improve and realise the difference their skills can make.

Look Good Feel Better’s General Manager Clare O’Higgins is thrilled with the announcement.

“Having a relationship with Elite International which has such practical benefit to both the students who volunteer and for Look Good Feel Better is exciting,” says O’Higgins. “We’re proud to be able to introduce young beauty students to the value of the Look Good Feel Better workshops and for them to see first-hand the difference their skills make to a cancer patient, it’s about utilising this great partnership in a practical way.”

Since last July, students from Elite International have volunteered at every Wellington Look Good Feel Better workshop and are set to continue this year.

“This is a two way partnership which brings a lot of value to Elite International in Wellington and Look Good Feel Better,” says Leigh Renai, Wellington Tutor for Look Good Feel Better. “While the Elite International students get hands on experience, Look Good Feel Better gains trained young volunteers who have so much to offer the workshop participants and the whole organisation.”
