Home instead are giving back this Christmas

Christmas is all about giving! This year at Home Instead Newcastle under Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent, our chosen festive charity is UHNM Charity - Fresh Hair Wigs & Wellbeing Salons at the Royal Stoke University Hospital and County Hospitals” they see around 650 patients a year suffering from hair loss through illness or cancer treatment.

They are a unique facility within the cancer centre helping women cope with the cosmetic side effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and alopecia.

Whilst chemotherapy saves lives, it does have side affects that can be devastating  and one of the hardest things for a woman to go through.

The salons offer patients specific and on-going support from expert wig fitters and beauticians, helping patients cope with losing hair, eyebrows and eyelashes.

The salons also supply jewellery and fashion accessories to patients for a donation towards charitable funds. These items are themselves donated to the salons, however supplies are now running low.

Fresh hair wigs and well-being are appealing for donations of new and nearly new jewellery, scarves and fashion accessories that could be of benefit to patients.

We are all very lucky to receive gifts each year, sometimes maybe too many! Please support this facility by calling into our office and donating your new or nearly new scarfs and accessories to this fabulous charity! We have a lovely Christmas themed donation box waiting for your gifts. Just imagine the difference that YOU can make!
