Band of Sisters enjoy a day of pampering

Posted by: Help For Heroes | Categories: General

It was time to kick off the shoes, sit back and be pampered for five lucky Band of Sisters members as they were treated to champagne, manicures and a full make-over by make-up artists Lee Pycroft and Anastasia Borovik at Chavasse VC House, the Help for Heroes run Recovery Centre in Colchester.

 The pamper day was      arranged as part of a whole  programme of events for  Band of Sisters, a fellowship group set up by Help for  Heroes for the loved ones  (male or female) who care  for those who have suffered  a life-changing injury or  illness. As members, Band  of Sisters have the chance  to get in touch with others  who understand what it  is  like to care for their nearest  and dearest, giving them the  opportunity to support each other through the days ahead.

Abbie Griggs, Band of Sisters Regional Coordinator: “Here at Help for Heroes, we recognise and understand that it isn’t just the ‘blokes’ (our men and women of the Armed Forces) that need support; it’s also a difficult and challenging time for their loved ones too. This is where the Band of Sisters fellowship plays a part.  It was great to see the ladies getting thoroughly spoilt, particularly by such a  prestigious make-up artist like Lee who volunteered her services. The ladies truly deserved it and looked amazing!”
