A beautician donated 250 treatment packs to two Cambridge hospitals to give staff and patients a boost.
Michaela Woor, 32, of Harston, runs Inner Beauty By Michaela and has been unable to perform her normal job at Addenbrookes and Papworth Hospitals due to Covid-19 restrictions.
She wanted to continue helping patients and staff and came up with the Cambridge Care Pack, which consisted of beauty products donated by businesses, salons and the public.
Michaela said: “Creating these care packs has allowed me to give something back to hospital staff and patients during the pandemic.
“It is so important that people feel normal during their treatment, have something to feel good about and help to boost morale while promoting self-care.
“Thank you very much to everyone involved.”
Michaela has worked in the oncology and transplant departments at Addenbrooke and Papworth Hospitals, providing beauty treatments to patients at their bedside for the past 10 years.
The treatments include manicures, pedicures, eyebrows, massages and facials and they aim to promote well-being and normalcy in the life of patients during their stay in the hospital.
Oncology patient Janet Loach, who received a pack, said: “Thank you for my Cambridge Pamper Pack, it is full of wonderful gifts.”
Michaela made 200 patient care packs and an additional 50 for staff, each pack including products such as cleansers, moisturizers, shampoos and face masks.
Michaela wanted to give back to the hospital and its patients, making sure personal care was always a priority despite the challenge of the pandemic.
