It’s the easiest good deed and gift you will ever give.
Hunter boutique small producers have joined forces with the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation (HBCF) to create a range of luxury pamper packages just in time for Mother’s Day this Sunday (10 May).
The foundation’s General Manager, Ellie Wells, said that, while charities like HBCF were forced to close their doors amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for their support services had doubled.
“The HBCF relies solely on community support to fund the support services we offer to local families,” she said.
“The pamper packs are a great way for people to still give a beautiful gift to someone they love while also supporting local small businesses and giving back to a local charity.”
The pamper packs will feature a range of Australian made, eco-friendly and locally-sourced items, including a coconut and rose bath milk, aromatherapy body scrub, organic Tamburlaine sparkling wine, handmade soy candle, beautiful gel face mask and artisan chocolate.
Luxurious pamper packages are available in different sizes. Locals can order online and have a pamper package customised, beautifully packed in biodegradable packaging, and personally delivered with a handwritten note to a family member or friend.
“At this time, we could all use a bit of extra self-care and pampering, so why not give back to our local community at the same time,” Ms Wells said.
There is also an option to sponsor a package for a local healthcare worker – a new initiative for the region.
Ms Wells said Novocastrians could buy a pamper package from the HBCF website, which would be personally delivered to a Hunter health care worker at a local hospital on their behalf, along with a personalised note and a big round of applause.
The proceeds of the pamper packs will go directly towards providing essential support services to families battling breast cancer throughout Newcastle and the Greater Hunter region.
“The goal of the HBCF is to ensure every Hunter family battling breast cancer feels loved and supported during this unpredictable time,” Ms Wells said.
“We want to make sure everyone is cared for and that no none is left behind.”
