On Wednesday 15th July 2009, Q Hair and Beauty, 37 North Street, Chichester, hosted a fundraising day in aid of St Wilfrid’s ‘Hospice at Home’ charity appeal.
The excited team of the local Hair and Beauty salon donated their time, efforts and skills for donations to the charity, providing cut and blow dry appointments for donations. The salon team also sold “Blue” Cakes, in their “Blue Q” T shirts kindly donated by Arun Signs, as well as holding a collection during the entire day.
To end the fundraising day for “Hospice at Home”, a celebration party from 4pm to 6pm was held, with music from “WintertoneS”. Food and wine kindly donated by “The Dining Room”, Chichester was served to guests by waiters of the local restaurant. A wide selection of guests attended the late afternoon celebration event, including hairdressing industry VIP’s, key Chichester city figures, and also salon clients, family and friends.
Each one of us at Q has, or knows someone that has benefited from the care that St Wilfrid’s provides; It’s our pleasure that we have been able to contribute and give back to the great work they do
The total amount raised was £651.16 that will go towards St Wilfrid’s “Hospice at Home” that provides and promotes high quality specialist palliative care through in-patient and community services. “Hospice at Home” is a new initiative that has been met with great community enthusiasm.
Salon Managing Director Dawn Lawrence who was key to the organisation and decision making of the “Blue Q Day” event, said “Each one of us at Q hair and beauty has, or knows someone that has benefited from the care that St Wilfrid’s provides; It’s our pleasure that we have been able to contribute and give back to the great work they do”.
Creative Director Helen Kewell said “The finale to the day was amazing, the salon was a buzz of activity, with music and goodwill”.
