Christine Sutherland (Invercargill)

Christine has been supporting Look Good Feel Better almost since its inception in 1992.

She is a volunteer coordinator and tutor in the communities of Invercargill, Dunedin, Oamaru, Central Otago, and Queenstown.

As one of the founding workshop tutors, Christine has supported more than a thousand women who have been impacted by the visible effects of cancer and its treatment. In the 2014 to 2016 period, she has reached nearly 400 women, helping them to face their cancer with more confidence and a sense of normality at a time that is anything but normal.

In addition to supporting local participants and volunteers, Christine also lends her hand whenever required to help support events and fundraising across the region.

Christine was working in the cosmetic industry in Invercargill when she was first introduced to Look Good Feel Better. She volunteered at the workshops, and once again witnessed the effect of what a little makeup could do to bolster confidence and self-esteem to so many of the brave woman attending the programme.
