Pink Ladies dress up to raise money for Breast Friends

Over the weekend, our Pink Ladies have been out and about raising money for Breast Friends.   Wearing their best fancy dress costumes – including Mrs Brown, and characters from Grease, the Pink team rallied support to encourage people to dress up and donate to this fantastic charity.

**Update – we now know the total raised was £219.81 so thank you to everyone who supported us!**

Charity event for Breast Friends

Breast Friends is a volunteer run charity that supports women with cancer through diagnosis, treatment and beyond.

At a charity event, held at the Three Horseshoes Pub in Wheathill, Bridgnorth, a competition for the best dressed individual helped in raising money, as all those who took part donated £5.00 per entry.  We received many entries and lots of donations – all of which are currently being checked and counted by the charity so we can announce the total raised at a later date.  We’d like to say a big thank you to the owners of the Three Horseshoes, Jim and Jane, who were very welcoming and put on a really good night with a singer and spread.

Pink Hair Solutions Charity Hair Show 2018 In Aid of Breast Friends

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.

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.
