A MAD hatters tea party was held at two hairdressing salons to raise money for a cancer charity.

Strands, in Hill Head and Whiteley, held a pink bake off as stylists tried to raise money for Breast Cancer Breakthrough.

Homemade cakes were available in both salons and customers donated what they could.

Emily Young, of Solent Road, is a graduate stylist at the Hill Head salon. The 19-year-old said: ‘There’s been lots of cake and we had big donations from our clients. It all adds up’

Both salons held a raffle on the day with a grand prize of GHD pink hair straighteners.

Wendy Jones, 41, of Queen’s Crescent, is the manager of the Whiteley salon.

She said: ‘The day went really well. It was surprising how generous our clients were. Lots of customers and kids from Whiteley Primary School also came to the day.’

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so Friday was the ideal day for this event.
