We are pleased to report that our Pop-up hair salon raised over £780 for Cynthia Spencer Hospice
We set up Northampton’s first pop-up salon on Saturday 10th May, in one of the towns busiest shopping streets, in order to raise money for terminal cancer suffers in Northampton. Instead of paying for their service, visitors to the pop-up salon were asked to make donations to the local Cynthia Spence Hospice, which provides specialist health service for people whose illness is no longer curable. All proceeds went to the hospice;just over £780.00 was raised.
Using a Chowns “To Let” property situated at the top of the Drapery we opened from 10am – 6pm for dry cuts, styling and consultancy, supported by hair products donated by Unite Eurotherapy. With DJ D’Arcy, professional photographer Paul Michael Hughes and a docu-film maker Dennis Plesca on site to capture and enhance the visitor experience the environment was buzzing with creativity.
Jason Hatt, owner of Hattbox hairdressing comments, “I’m thrilled the day went so well, we raised money for an important local charity and helped to bring a new feel to the town centre, if only for a day. I hope we see more vacant properties in the center being used in similar ways to help rejuvenate the town and bring back some independent creative spirit. The shoppers in Northampton were absolutely fantastic, we had a great turnout and everyone gave so generously. My thanks go out to everyone who helped make the day a success.”
