SAKS HAIR & BEAUTY UK Raise £150,000 FOR GYNAECOLOGICAL CANCERS
At time of print, Saks Hair & Beauty UK has raised £150k for The Eve Appeal. This amount being towards its target of £250k to aid research into the five women-only cancers of the womb, ovaries, cervix, vulva and vagina.
Most recently the UK-wide hair and beauty salon group joined an array of high-profile Eve ambassadors – including Karen Hobbs, Caroline Hirons and Cherry Healey – to support Eve’s #GETLIPPY campaign on social media in May, encouraging women – and men – to speak up and out about the signs and symptoms of women’s cancers.
Janet King, Head of Marketing for the brand, says: “I’m blown away by how everyone’s joined in with our ongoing fundraising activities. I’d like to thank our customers, friends, families and – of course – our brilliant Saks teams for their continued contribution.” Janet continues: “A big part of our partnership is raising awareness. We’ve got to keep teaching our daughters the correct language to use so they’re not embarrassed to talk to their GPs about gynaecological issues. Vagina is not a dirty word!”
Since 2015, Saks teams have blow-dried, baked, cycled, massaged, nail-painted, pants paraded, ran, raffled, sky-dived, spray-tanned, walked, waxed and zip-wired their way to £150k.
Athena Lamnisos, Chief Executive of The Eve Appeal says: “Target smashing Team Saks have done it again! We’ve reached an incredible milestone passing the £150k mark. We are so thrilled to have Saks as our brilliant charity partner. The enthusiasm, commitment and support
