Champneys, the UK’s leading health spa group has announced its partnership with Cancer Hair Care, the UK’s leading Hair Loss support charity, to launch its ‘Hair Loss Friendly Spa’ campaign across each of the Champneys spa resorts Tring, Henlow, Forest Mere, Springs and hotels Eastwell Manor and Mottram Hall.
As part of the campaign, Champneys will offer a range of cancer friendly support services including specially trained Hair Loss Friendly therapists at each spa resort who are able to provide scalp care guidance to guests as well thoughtful touches such as wig stands and head scarves. The aim is to help women who are undergoing cancer treatment to feel welcomed and nurtured during and following their spa visit.
Jasmin Julia Gupta, the ‘Hair Loss Friendly’ campaign creator and founder of charity service Cancer Hair Care said, “When a woman loses her hair, it is often a traumatic experience. Left unsupported she can experience image anxiety and isolation. There are many subtle barriers that unintentionally result in women with hair loss not accessing nourishing experiences that could boost their self-confidence. Together with Champneys, we can make hair loss one less worry.”
Cancer Hair Care and the ‘Hair Loss Friendly’ campaign is being supported by Mrs Dorothy Purdew OBE, Champneys co-owner and chairperson, who says, “Champneys is delighted to be working with Cancer Hair Care. When I discovered this fantastic charity I realised how important their unique approach to supporting women during hair loss due to cancer treatment is, and I was inspired to support them. I really hope that other spa groups will also join in.”
As part of the ‘Hair Loss Friendly Spa’ campaign, Champneys has also partnered with the Made for Life Foundation which supports those diagnosed with and recovering from cancer and Made for Life wellness therapies are now available across all Champneys spa resorts. Made for Life therapies are suitable for anyone, including those going through cancer treatment, and will include Hand on Heart, a relaxing back, scalp and facial treatment, Catch the Breath, a soothing back and scalp treatment and Soft Touch Therapy, a deeply relaxing touch to the face or body. The therapies all use Made for Life Organics products which are hand blended in Cornwall and are ideal for sensitive and sensitized skin.

Meet Katie Godfrey… Bedfordshire Beauty and Hair expert
Katie Godfrey is the powerhouse behind the KG brand, single-handedly building her empire from a single salon bought aged 19 as a school leaver with no qualifications, to a chain of salons, a UK-wide beauty training academy, an eyelash product range and a salon coaching business.
Katie left school at 13 after being bullied, but this only made her more determined to succeed in life. Her Bedfordshire beauty salon became a go-to destination and after being named Eyelash Technician of the Year in 2014, Katie started to rack up the awards winning 15 to date, and securing press coverage nationally including the likes of OK and Hello, as well as pampering various celebrities.
Now you’re as likely to find her judging awards as winning them – she’s co-owner of the “World Lash University” conference & awards which is partnered with “The Lash Games” at Olympia Beauty, and has her own podcast, “The Life Of KG”, aimed at those in the hair and beauty space but also relatable to anyone in business.
How Katie Godfrey expanded her brand
Going on to own a chain of franchise salons, Katie then sold these to focus on education, aiming to raise standards across salons and within the industry. She launched KG Professional, a beauty training academy which now has branches in Bedfordshire, Southampton, Gloucestershire, Derbyshire, Milton Keynes, Sussex and Essex, and an eyelash product range.
Within 6 months of launch, the eyelash range was selling into 500 salons and is now sold globally. Katie was one of the first trainers in the UK to teach Russian Volume Lashes, flying to New York to learn and then bring the techniques back.
In addition to maintaining the salon and pro businesses, Katie is a dedicated business mentor and looks after over 35 salons. She started this side business 3 years ago after being inundated by businesses coming to her for help as a result of her success story – she offers 1-2-1 and group mentoring sessions, and aims to launch the first comprehensive online business course for the hair and beauty industry imminently. She talks regularly at colleges and events about her story and is passionate about motivating others to build their careers. She is one of the authors of number 1 best-selling book, ‘Extraordinary Women’, and co-owner of “Salon Franchise,” a consultancy company in the hair & beauty industry.
Katie’s achievements are all the more impressive considering she has done this while single-handedly parenting her daughter. She is testament to the goals that can be reached with determination and hard work and is inspiring and helping many others to do the same.
