Ready to jumble
Despite it being a busy weekend in the salon in the run-up to Christmas, Leicester salon group, George’s Hairdressing opened up its doors to host a charity event with a difference.
Upon hearing about all of the great work that Leicester Link do in the local community, Salon Director Bianka Katon and stylist Leanne Cunningham immediately wanted to help and decided to hold a jumble sale in their city centre branch on Granby Street, Leicester.
Stylists, clients and members of the public alike donated items to be sold. On the day, hundreds of people passed through the salon doors to donate funds and pick up a Christmas bargain. From Burberry to Diesel and River Island to Firetrap, the salon had some beautiful items on sale, all at the bargain price of £1.
Bianka was overwhelmed with the success of the event: “Every year we like to think of those less fortunate than ourselves here at George’s and really kick start the Christmas spirit.”
The event was a massive success and the team’s efforts raised £400 for charities Leicester Link, Leicester Y and the Dawn Centre.
