Tokoroa gets cancer support programme
A cancer support programme designed to help women ‘‘look good’’ and ‘‘feel better’’ gave local ladies the royal treatment in Tokoroa.
The Tokoroa District Lions organised the first workshop which was held at the South Waikato Sport and Events Centre.
President Kathleen Davy said it was a journey of a year to organise the event.
‘‘I think it’s so awesome. They deserve to be pampered and know that we care.
‘‘Some of us are survivors and we felt quite passionate about it and why not do something for our locals and our locals deserve it.’’
The free service involved professionals giving five woman a hair and make up session.
Davy said clients have been referred to the workshops and all of the women are at different stages of their treatment.
‘‘These ladies are going through a traumatic thing why not have something on your door step when your feeling down.
‘‘It takes a lot out of you and all of us have been touched by it (cancer) through our family.’’
Members of the club felt passionate about bringing the programme to Tokoroa.
Four workshops have been organised for the year.
