New base for pamper clinic

Have your say

A SELF-esteem boosting service for cancer patients is set to be extended from its base in Doncaster.

The Aurora Centre, which provides beauty treatments at its bases in Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Mexborough Montagu Hospital, has now been given permission to take over the Old Library Building in Memorial Avenue, Worksop.

A fundraising campaign has been launched to fund the extension, receiving an impressive start with a donation from Ye Olde Bell pub at Barnby Moor, which raised more than £10,000 from an X Factor evening.

The charity provides professional beauty therapy treatments such as advice on skin care and hair loss for patients suffering from the impact of cancer and the side effects of its treatment.
