The first free Pamper Day for ladies who have been diagnosed with cancer was held at the Christian Gospel Centre on Tuesday, October 1.

After receiving their free goodie bags, the ladies enjoyed scones and muffins and other cakes with their cuppa. It was officially opened at 9.45am by City of Victor Harbor councillor Carol Schofield.

The ladies enjoyed free massages, Bowen therapy, Reflexology, hand massages, manicures and foot spas and they were totally pampered.

'The Look Good, Feel Better' workshop also ran in the morning and the ladies enjoyed a free kit of make up products and enjoyed tips on how to draw their eyebrows and put on the beautiful makeup and maintain their skin care after the gruelling cancer treatment.

Rebekha Sharkie attended to speak to some of the ladies and learned a about prosthesis and scarves and Breast Cancer Network Australia.

They all enjoyed a light lunch followed by more pampering and there was also a casual class of Qigong and meditation. The free door prize proved a success and every lady won a prize and went home exhilarated.

The Breast Of Friends Cancer Support Group for Women in Victor Harbor thank Bodywork Massage and Wellness, and Bowen Wellness for providing their free services on the day. "We also are thankful to Bakers Delight in Victor Harbor and Priceline for their contribution to make this event a success," spokesperson said.
