YOUNG people participating in the National Citizen Service this summer are holding a hair-themed fundraising event next week.

The teenagers will undertake three separate beauty-based challenges on August 19 to raise money for Naomi House.

Three members will dye their hair blue, another will have his legs waxed, and a girl is shaving her head in memory of a friend who was receiving care at Naomi House.

The fundraiser takes place at the Innovation salon in Gosport from 11am.
