Spargoland’s Charity Ball 2017
Hairdressing charity Spargoland recently held their annual charity ball at De Rougemont Manor in Brentwood to raise money for the country’s first hair salon designed for people with learning and physical difficulties.
The Best Ball Yet
Ian Marshall, owner of Brentwood salon Spargo Hairdressing and founder of the Spargoland charity, put his heart and soul into organising the charity’s third ball, and it was the biggest and best yet. This year, it was a masquerade ball and the 172 guests were treated to a 3-course meal and live entertainment throughout the night from DJ Martin Bell. To raise money for Spargoland a raffle was held along with an auction featuring prizes such as a signed and framed Ed Sheeran photograph, signed Anthony Joshua boxing gloves and a golf day at Brentwood Gold Club. The night was a huge success, with an estimated £9,500 raised.
Designed To Help
The non-profit Spargoland salon has been designed to cater for children and adults with learning, physical and additional needs. From a sensory waiting area, creative lighting, and independent booths that act as self-contained salons, the salon offers nail and haircuts as these simple experiences can be challenging and traumatic for people with learning or physical difficulties. Spargoland ultimately gives customers the flexibility to have their hair cut in a way that is unique to them.
A Real Team Effort
Ian Marshall says, “Our 2017 Charity Ball was another huge success! The evening was full of fun, laughter, generosity and support. I am exceptionally proud to be able to hold such events but none of it would be possible without the organization and support of Julie Day, our receptionist and much more at Spargo Hairdressing. She is phenomenal at arranging, campaigning, fundraising and working tirelessly to make it all happen. We’re so lucky to have so much support from clients, suppliers, friends, family and the local community. My dream of Spargoland has become a reality!”
