The first ever Look Good Feel Better charity tournament was staged at the Copper Box Arena, England on Sunday and raised over £20,000.
30 teams signed up to take part and they were all on court for a brisk warm-up session by mid-morning. There were smiles, bright colours and sportsmanship galore on show.
Plenty of spectators donated £10 to watch the teams in action and Vitality Netball Superleague stars Lindsay Keable, Peace Proscovia and Vanessa Walker were on hand to dish out some top tips, show their support and join in the fun.
At the end of the day we had three delighted winners with Panthers clinching the victory in Pool 1, Dixon Wilson topping Pool 2 and The Wilderpeople triumphing in Pool 3.
Throughout the day beauty and netball masterclasses were held with players and spectators given the opportunity to explore the beauty playground and pick up a few treats along the way.
Supporting women of all ages to manage the visible side effects of cancer treatment,
Look Good Feel Better is the only worldwide cancer support charity providing practical support for women struggling with the side effects from cancer treatment.
Finding out you have cancer can be daunting and life-changing and the added stress of the appearance related side effects of treatment can be demoralising and very hard to cope with.
This can have serious consequences on self-esteem and confidence at a time when a positive attitude is very important.
Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to improving the self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing of people undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer.
It is our aim to improve their self-image and appearance through free group and self-help skincare and make-up workshops that create a sense of support, confidence, and wellbeing.
Look Good Feel Better held their first UK Workshop in 1994 and has to date provided support to more than 130,000 patients.
Their services have the support of over 50 leading companies and brands from the Beauty, Cosmetic and Fragrance Industry, as well as many other organisations who recognise the benefits of our service.
Many beneficiaries tell us that Look Good Feel Better helped them regain a sense of control and normality at a time when diagnosis and treatment can make everything feel overwhelming.
Cancer can rob a woman of her energy and strength but with the support of Look Good Feel Better it need not take away her self-confidence.
England Netball would like to thank all of the players, officials, volunteers and spectators for supporting a wonderful event.
