On Saturday 13th August William & Mary Hair Salon in Ashley Heath held their 5th birthday celebration and Charity Day with an Alice in Wonderland themed event. The day included tea and cakes served on the green, a fabulous raffle, with prizes donated by the salon’s clients and local businesses, and the salon staff, wearing fancy dress, were extremely busy carrying out non-stop blow dries for customers with all proceeds being donated to The Sheiling Ringwood.
The salon raised an amazing £1075 for The Sheiling Ringwood, an Independent Special School, College and a Children’s Care Home for students with severe, complex and moderate learning disabilities, including autism and communication difficulties. The money will be put towards new chairs for the Assembly Hall which are much needed.
Emma Beddow, Salon Manager, said: ‘’We are delighted to not only have been able to celebrate the salon’s 5th birthday, but also to raise money for The Sheiling Ringwood, a charity close to our hearts and which is also close to our salon. We had a great day and we are very grateful to the support we received from so many of our clients.’’
Corine van Barneveld, Principal, commented: ‘’We very much appreciate the hard work and fund-raising efforts from all at William & Mary and we are extremely grateful for the money they raised and to the people who supported the event and so generously donated.’’
