HAIRDRESSERS took to the street in fancy dress to offer cut-price haircuts to raise money for Naomi House Children’s Hospice.
Dressed as princesses and nursery rhyme characters, staff at Hi-Lites salon in Milton, Portsmouth, offered customers £5 haircuts – and raised hundreds of pounds for the hospice in the process.
Salon owner Alison Irish said: ‘We wanted to do something for charity but we wanted it to be something fun. It was a good way of involving all our customers.’
After the charity haircuts the salon carried on raising money with a fundraiser at Kingsley’s Bar in Southsea.
In total, the day raised £1,500.
Caroline Johnson, a volunteer at Naomi House, said: ‘It’s fantastic that they are going out of their way to raise money for the charity. There aren’t many businesses that would do this.’
