‘Radio presenter and fashion stylist Rebecca McKinney is hosting an afternoon of beauty, wellness and fashion at Galgorm Resort and Spa in Ballymena to raise funds for Cancer Focus Northern Ireland.

The Beauty Collective, a celebration of beauty both inside and out, will be held on Sunday May 12 from 12noon to 5pm and includes a scrumptious afternoon tea and a £30 goodie bag.

The proceeds will help fund important pioneering breast cancer research at Queen’s University.

The Cancer Focus NI Sing for Life choir will also give a short recital and there will be spot prizes and a raffle on the day.

Working with Cancer Focus NI has a personal meaning for me this year after losing my beloved grandmother to the illness on Christmas Eve,” Rebecca said. “She was a fabulously stylish lady, who taught me everything I know about fashion and classic dressing. I’m looking forward to raising some funds in her honour and delving into my own wardrobe, to share some tips on a wearable capsule wardrobe, with all the impact!”

As well as getting an insight into stylist Rebecca’s wardrobe essentials, guests will enjoy make up demonstrations by Julie Smith (Make Up by Julie) and skin care advice by Helen McBurney (HM Beauty) from Ballymena.

You’ll be able to get suitably stylish with Peter Mark hairdressing and personal development tips from wellness expert Annette Kelly (Little Penny Thoughts).

Katie McKeegan, from Cancer Focus NI, said: “This will be such a lovely afternoon in the stunning surrounds of Galgorm. It’s the perfect way to spend a few hours with the special ladies in your life – your mum, grandmother, daughter or grand-daughter, sister or with a few friends. You’re worth it!

It’ll be an entertaining afternoon full of all the latest information and trends in make-up, fashion, skincare and hair. Along with an amazing goody bag and afternoon tea, it will be a day to help you maximise your beauty both inside and out.

The Beauty Collective is one of a series of different events marking Cancer Focus NI’s 50th birthday. The money that is raised will stay in Northern Ireland and help Cancer Focus NI continue to fund our research into breast cancer at Queen’s University. We hope you can come along and join us.”

You can chose from a standard ticket which offers afternoon tea and a goodie bag for £50. The VIP ticket includes a sparkling afternoon tea, deluxe goodie bag and front row seating for £70. Tickets are available on the Cancer Focus NI website here.
