The industry charity, Hair & Beauty Benevolent (HABB), showcased the new HABB Collection Boxes at the annual Fellowship for British Hairdressing Luncheon and Awards, and was pleased to announce that £1,036 was raised on the day.
With a room full of hairdressing’s elite, HABB Chairman, Philip Rogers requested a pledge from the guests to support the charity and donate directly to the newly launched HABB Collection Boxes placed on each table.
Launched in 2014, the HABB Collection Boxes have been created to make fundraising in salons easier. Salons and stylists can request the collection boxes and place in the staff room and reception desks for simple change donations, or for forward thinking salons and academies as model night donations. HABB Chairman Philip Rogers explains,
This was the ideal opportunity to bring HABB to the forefront of the leading names in hairdressing and it was great to have the support of the Fellowship and their members at the event. We’d like to thank the Fellowship and those who donated for your support. The money raised will help us give a better life to a hairdresser who has fallen on hard times or a child in need; that’s exactly how HABB helps others.
