Friday 15 August 2014 marked the official opening of the Nepean Wig Library service in Esteem Hair and Beauty Spa at Penrith with Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joining Martin and Allison Lazare of Esteem and Rodney Titovs of the Cancer Council NSW for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Salon owners Martin and Alison worked closely with the Cancer Council NSW and the Nepean Cancer Care Centre to get the service up and running in the new location. The Nepean Wig Library is a not-for-profit service and offers a private consultation room for patients with a fully trained member of the Esteem team helping to pick out the ideal wig.
Esteem Hair and Beauty Spa is at Shop 15/510-536 High Street in Penrith, with the Wig Library Service available on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2pm to 4pm.
The event also highlighted upcoming Daffodil Day which is on Friday 22 August 2014.
Stuart Ayres said Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day is a wonderful campaign which has provided awareness and support of critical cancer research over many years.
Daffodil Day is the largest national fundraising event of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
“So many people in our local community have been touched by the effects of cancer either directly or through someone they know. I encourage the people of Penrith to buy a daffodil pin in support of this worthwhile cause,” added Stuart Ayres.
