On the 22nd April 2018, Pink Hair hosted a Charity Hair Show to Raise money for Breast Friends Sutton Coldfield and can proudly announce a breath taking £10,164.00 was raised.
Firstly we would like to say a massive Thank You to the Pavilions at Moor Lane for letting us use the venue free of charge, and for all their help while planning our event over the past few months.
Thank you to all the ladies, gentlemen and children that joined us for a fun filled afternoon and helped us raise such an amazing amount of money.
Before our event took place the fundraising had already started, the following people made such an impact on the full amount raised for Breast friends.
- Linda Heeley founder of Pink Hair solution set herself a goal to swim 1 mile (64 lengths) and on the 22nd March 2018 Linda successfully completed the swim and raised an outstanding £1,297.50 to go to the charity
- Sea Saw Day Nursery on the Chester Road ran a fundraising week with a cake bake, car wash and wear it pink day and raised £315.00
- Carol Haines had been growing her hair for 2 years as she wanted to donate it to the Little Princess Trust. Carol had raised a astonishing £700.00 and if she were to raise £1,000 she would have her head shaved. So we sent out a bucket to our guests at the event and raised the remaining £300.00 and more, Carol in total has raised £1,230.00
What happened on the day of our charity hair show
We kick started the event with champagne and food, this gave our guest’s time to browse around many of our market stalls including: Bernie the Dress Maker, Tropic, Forever living, Hip Headwear, Bannatyne Spa, Avon, Sheer success, Foxy Lady, Amoena, Jewellery stall and Cards. This was also a chance for our guests to try their luck on the tombola and to buy raffle tickets which included some fantastic prizes which we all kindly donated.
The main event
We started our Hair show, with a bit of fun working our way through the decades from the 1960’s up to the 2000’s – we’ve included a couple of images here but please visit our Facebook page for more pictures.
Here comes the bride
Whether it is a contemporary or an alternative wedding you are looking for these looks can be achieved as shown by our models in the battle of the Brides.
The stars of the show
We had a special guest join us all the way from Ireland, Mrs Brown stole the show with her impressive dance moves. Also Michael Jackson made a special appearance to perform a famous dance routine which got all the crowd going.
Back to reality
To end the show we presented a full range of everyday wigs so ladies could see they can still achieve their desired style with a wig and be confident , we also showcased a range of headwear and fringes for people who may not want to wear a wig.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all the lovely models: Levi, Vicky, Sam, Mia, Kira, Victoria, Sammy, Kate, Tegan and Mrs Brown.
And to all the staff at Pink as the day would not have been possible without them.
