KIND hair stylists are chopping prices in a one-off fundraising event to raise money for a hospice.

Staff at Jessica M Hairdressing, in Stockton Road, Hartlepool, are hosting their own cut-price fundraising day to raise money for Hartlepool and District Hospice.

Everything will be half price on Saturday, April 9, at the salon and a number of prizes will also be on offer with a raffle which the dedicated stylists have organised.

Chelsea Monk, an apprentice stylist at the salon, said: “We were all having a chat in the salon and decided we wanted to do something to raise money for charity.

“We thought this would be a nice way to do it and the Hartlepool Hospice is a fantastic cause.

“All proceeds from the day will go to the hospice.

“It is just a normal day, customers will still have to book and hopefully we will raise a lot of money.

“We have already had some brilliant donations for the raffle and we would like to thank the Castle Eden Inn, The White Hart in Hart Village, Skin Deep beauty salon, Kane Young Photography and the Kate Sirs School of Music for their involvement.”

Sandra Britten, from Hartlepool and District Hospice, said: “I would like to thank the staff and customers of Jessica M Hairdressing for the support and I hope the day is a huge success.

“Hartlepool and District Hospice provides a wide range of specialist services including a day hospice, inpatient unit, lymphoedema clinic, bereavement services and complimentary therapies.

“All of our services are free of charge but not free to provide; the support of the local community and businesses like Jessica M are a huge boost to the hospice and help to ensure we can continue to provide them.”
