On Saturday 9th November the award-winning team at Portsmouth salon group Strands Hairdressing held their very first ‘Hairy Ball’ in aid of Testicular Cancer at the Crofton Working Men’s Club in Stubbington, raising a phenomenal £2000 for the charity.
Over 200 guests flocked to the event, which saw local band ‘May Contain Nuts’ take to the stage alongside Whiteley Salon Manager Chloe Rule and friends Kim McGinley and Annie Buggins, who performed three songs to entertain the crowd.
Inspired by seeing friends affected by the disease and in a bid to raise awareness, the salon team sold specially designed ‘Movember’ t-shirts and organised a prize raffle to earn extra pounds for the charity by donating football boots, straighteners and a makeover in the salon for the lucky winners.
Strands Hairdressing Founder Pauline Howe commented,
I couldn’t be prouder of my team – raising £2000 for Testicular Cancer is an incredible achievement and it’s great to be able to give back to a cause that is close to our hearts.
