  • Sarajane Robertson, Executive Director, Look Good…Feel Better UK

Sarahjane has worked for the cancer support charity for twelve years. She says:

I am honoured to accept this award and the recognition it bestows on Look Good Feel Better. Without the longstanding commitment of the COPRA Board and their members to our charity, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve the same reach to women struggling through cancer treatment” “The support from COPRA and all our retail partners has proved invaluable over many years. Their fundraising, promotional activities and in-store events alongside their high profile Luncheon and Ball have enabled LGFB to carry out many greatly valued projects and on behalf of all the women we touch each year – thank you.
