A Special Thanks

Thank you to everyone who joined us at this years COPRA Lunch.

"COPRA acts as a voice for development and wellbeing in retailing in cosmetics and perfumery in the UK, and we will continue to support young people seeking a career in beauty by way of connecting to brands and retailers. We are continuing to link with professional retailers to ensure we are offering the knowledge and information to support and drive the sales of premium cosmetics and perfumes.” Vesa Kalho

The Beauty Industry deserves a good celebration, a moment to stop and appreciate all your hard work, and a glass of fizz or two. In saying that, it really is the people who attend that make each COPRA event so great. We appreciate you taking the time to be there, the friendly faces we see each year, and the new movers and shakers. 

"We are delighted to announce that we raised in excess of £35,000 in 2018. Congratulations to Look Good Feel Better on celebrating their 25th year of fundraising. Well done for achieving this impressive milestone. Our focus is to continue to support their confidence-boosting workshops for men, women, and young adults facing the traumatic challenges of cancer treatment.” Vesa Kalho
