Fundraising success for Harrogate hair and beauty salon

28 January 2014

Halo hair and beauty salon has handed over a cheque for more than £1600 after fund-raising for two local charities.

Joseph Ferraro and his team raised £1660 for the Acorn Committee and Dementia Forward by holding a blow-dry-a-thon and mini manicure-a-thon.

As well as the two events in the salon, the team also took part in Ripon’s Santa Fun Run to boost the charity’s coffers even further.

Chair of the Acorn Committee, Louise Hanen, dropped into the Leeds Road, Harrogate, salon to pick up the bumper cheque – and to thank Joseph and his team for their fundraising efforts.

Louise said: The money raised will have an immediate and very positive impact in the local community.

The Acorn Committee raised almost £105,000 last year – a new record – with funds directed towards people with dementia and their carers and for research into scleroderma disease.
