Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is the only cancer support charity specifically set up to help people manage the visible side effects of their cancer treatment.  Their annual walking event, SWALK, takes place on Sunday 8th July at Denbies and money raised will help to expand their services across the South East, in particular their services at The Royal Marsden, Reigate, Guildford and Kingston Hospitals.

Taking part in SWALK is the perfect way to discover the lush green hills and picturesque views that the Surrey countryside has to offer. There will be the option of a 5K route and a 10K, both of which will take you through the acres of Denbies vineyards and undulating walking paths. One walker last year commented: “We walked through beautiful countryside and everyone we met was in great spirits. The whole atmosphere was terrific.” 

On the day, whether you are walking with friends, colleagues or if you are walking on your own you won’t be alone, hundreds of other people will also be walking alongside you, raising a flag for Look Good Feel Better and raising as much as they can to help fund even more Workshop places.

With 360,000 people newly diagnosed every year in the UK, demand for Look Good Feel Better’s confidence boosting services is greater than ever. 

As you cross the finishing line, the LGFB team will be there to handover a lovely SWALK bag full of goodies – supplied by the sponsors and corporate partners of LGFB.

Afterwards, there will be live music and entertainment for everyone to enjoy. Having likely worked up a bit of an appetite, you can indulge in delicious refreshments in Denbies courtyard and gardens – the perfect al-fresco experience. 

Entry Prices: Adult: £20 | Child: £5 | Family of 4 (2 adults max): £40 | Dogs: FREE

Look Good Feel Better’s free, confidence-boosting Workshops are held in over 103 locations across the UK and every year provide vital practical and emotional support for people struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment.  

Volunteer beauty consultants lead the sessions and teach vital skills such as how to deal with changes to the skin and drawing on missing eyebrows and eyelashes.  The workshops bring people together in a relaxed environment for some much needed pampering and the opportunity to meet other facing similar challenges.  From 2018, Look Good Feel Better now provide dedicated services for women, men and teenagers living with cancer. 

Look Good Feel Better receives no statutory funding and relies totally on the generosity of our supporters who raise funds through our organised events like SWALK and their own fundraising initiatives.

To see what happens at the Workshops and Masterclasses please watch ‘Voices of Look Good Feel Better

People can register on arrival and all walkers will receive the goody bags (see pictures below).

Kids get a goody bag too and we’ll be handing out little treat bags for the doggies!
