Hairdressers awarded food hamper for fundraising efforts
Published on 28/01/2013

Employees at a hairdressers in Sandy, East Midlands have been treated to a food hamper after raising more than £2,500 for a breast cancer charity.

Friends Five Star Salon was presented with the gourmet popcorn goodies and crowned the Top Ghd Fundraiser in the East Midlands for Breakthrough Breast Cancer after gathering funds of £2,677, Biggleswade Today reports.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month last October, workers at the local business put on a ball in Southill and organised a raffle.

Salon manager Michaela Woodcock told the news provider the hairdressers thoroughly enjoyed the fundraising activities and said it is amazing to know the money raised is going to such a worthwhile cause.

"[It] is a great achievement and we will continue to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Ghd in their fight to stop women dying from breast cancer," she added.

Hair straighteners supplier Ghd has raised more than £6 million for Breakthrough Breast Cancer in the last nine years and the £2,677 collected by Friends Five Star Salon is set to help develop better cancer treatments.
