they needed ex­tra vol­un­teers to help with keep­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion op­er­a­tional. We es­pe­cially need hair­dressers and beauty pro­fes­sion­als. It’s not too de­mand­ing, you just need to be avail­able for the Look Good Feel Bet­ter work­shops, which are held on Mon­days and of­fered ap­prox­i­mately six times a year.

The best piece of ad­vice I can of­fer is... al­ways tell

The Wig Li­brary is lo­cated at the West­ern Plains Cul­tural Cen­tre and pro­vides to the Orana re­gion as far as Bourke, Co­bar and be­yond. Clients are fit­ted by pro­fes­sion­als.
