Just as the local community comes and supports us – we believe that it is just as important to give back. We love to give our time and effort for local causes.
Twice a year we donate hairdressing vouchers to local schools and charities to help them fundraise. Approximately 28 vouchers are given to be raffled or auctioned especially at key fundraising times at summer and Christmas. Each voucher is worth over £50 and all money raised from these vouchers directly help the local community.
Work experience club
We have developed a work experience club to assist young adults with special needs or learning difficulties to take their first step into the work place and gain confidence. The placements are for 4 hours a week and form a vital step for young adults ready to engage with the working world. The placements last as long as the young adult needs and have been a beneficial experience for our 2 previous work experience adults as well as ourselves. Thank you too, Molly! “The work experience club has been such a rewarding experience for us. It’s been fantastic seeing our young apprentices grow in confidence and leave ready for the next step in life” Ben Forrest.
