Well I finally made it back from my Easter holiday safe and sound after having an extended break due to the Icelandic volcano crisis! With so much work to do back here, it was very frustrating although if I'm going to be stranded, then Antigua is not a bad place to be!
Back on British soil, I headed to HOB Salons in Camden the very next day to support the team in our company-wide HAIRraising day on Sunday 25th April and what a great day it was! All the salon teams really pulled it out the bag, going to incredible lengths for the appeal and the total - between £25,000 - £30,000 from the day, is testament to their amazing fundraising efforts!
From bake sales and raffles to live bands and even celebrity supporters including England footballer Jermain Defoe, the day was great fun!
I'm so inspired to see salons up and down the country going to great lengths for this fantastic cause and I really believe that together we can reach John Frieda's target of £1million if we all do something between now and August. Happy HAIRraising! Akin
