If I can help just one person feel happier and better about themselves during a challenging time, the flow on effect reaches so many more people in their lives.
They no longer feel alone in this journey and our participants leave the workshop very happy, confident and excited to try their treasure trove of ideas and products.
Throughout each workshop we see participants go from being reluctant, unsure and nervous, moving through the process, and regaining their self-confidence.
Being able to give women going through a traumatic time in their lives the empowerment to face cancer with confidence always brings joy.
I enjoy being involved in people’s journeys and giving them the tools to make going through treatment just that little bit easier.
The knowledge and skills gained are invaluable, empowering each participant to feel in control of their lives again.
I’m inspired and energised by the collective compassion shown by all the volunteers, and the bravery and positivity of the women participating.
A lady recently said at the end of a workshop that she could not remember the last time she laughed. That was pretty amazing to me.
I am very proud to have been a volunteer with LGFB for going on 13 years now and only regret that I hadn’t joined earlier!
