Pamper parties raise money for cancer

Words by Smiley Team

Pamper parties are no longer just a way to unwind and prioritise self-care – they can now be a way to raise vital funds for cancer charities. 

Boots are encouraging customers to take some time out for a ‘Me-time’ moment or to hold their own ‘Me-time pamper event’ with friends and family at home, in aid of Macmillan.  

The high-street retailer has curated "pamper starter packs" containing a range of self-care goodies. Available in store and online, they include everything for the indulgent manicure, relaxing facial or soothing massage.

And for every purchase up until 1st May, a donation of the profits will go directly to Macmillan. Customers are also encouraged to download the ‘Me-time’ fundraising pack from, that is packed with hints and tips for holding your own pamper event at home. 

To support the conversation around self-care and cancer, Drag Queen and cancer awareness ambassador Baga Chipz, popped into her local Boots store to pick up the products she needs to host her own ‘Me-Time’ Pamper Event.

Lucy Reynolds, director of communications, CSR & Sustainability at Boots, said: “With over 3 million people in the UK living with cancer, it is more important than ever to continue to raise vital funds for Macmillan, to support the amazing work they do with cancer patients, their friends and family.  

“At Boots, we know the importance of self-care and how taking time for yourself can make a huge difference to your mental wellbeing. We want to inspire customers to enjoy some valuable me-time, or hold their own pamper event, whilst raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.” 

Kate Goldman-Toomey, director of corporate partnerships & philanthropy at Macmillan Cancer Support, added: “Cancer can have an impact on the way you look as well as the way you feel, making an already difficult time even worse. At Macmillan, we are doing whatever it takes to make sure people with cancer have the support they need, which is why we are so delighted to be working with Boots for the ‘Me Time Pamper Event’. 

“Self-care can be really valuable for people’s wellbeing, and we want everyone – from those undergoing treatment to those who just need a pick me up - to get involved and help support those living with cancer.” 

Customers can visit to download their fundraising packs to help them host the ultimate Me Time pamper event in aid of Macmillan. Customers can also donate to Macmillan in-store too, by adding a donation to their transactions at checkout.
