Amanda Winwood honoured with Outstanding Contribution Award
By Megan Whitby 17 Mar 2020
Winwood works closely with people touched by cancer, through her accredited Cancer Touch Therapy training course and charity – called Made for Life Foundation
The UK Spa Association (UKSA) has awarded the founder of Made For Life Organics Amanda Winwood with the UKSA Certificate of Oustanding Contribution.

The award recognises individuals who have achieved something remarkable within the UK spa industry.

Winwood founded Made For Life Organics in 2001 which produces a range of authentic organic skincare and natural amenities, it is claimed to be the first skincare range in the UK to achieve 100 per cent organic accreditation across the whole range.

Winwood also works closely with people touched by cancer, through her accredited Cancer Touch Therapy training course and charity – called Made for Life Foundation.

Winwood’s foundation supports the families and partners of those affected by cancer, holding regular events and providing support through presentations, advice and introducing mindfulness and visualisation.

UKSA chair Adam Chatterley commented: “One in two people will suffer from cancer and I don’t have to explain that everyone will have been affected in some way by knowing, or supporting someone. Our industry has faced issues in treating guests touched by cancer but Amanda is one of those very special individuals who has supported us in opening our doors to these guests.”

“It was such an honour, and in truth, a complete shock, to be given the Outstanding Achievement award,” said Winwood.

“It’s been an absolute privilege to be part of the implementation of making a fundamental change to the spa industry and to helps spas and therapists feel empowered to welcome anyone living with cancer into their treatment room with confidence,” she said.

Members are welcome to nominate individuals from the UK spa industry to be put forward for the award.

Emma Jane North, spa director of Y Spa at Wyboston Lakes, was also honoured with an outstanding contribution award by the UKSA.
