The event is taking place virtually on Saturday 5th June and will be hosted live on Instagram @standtogether_glamtogether
What to expect from the charity event
Star of This Morning, Bryony Blake, and Oscar-Nominated film and TV designer, Marc Pilcher, have signed up to Stand Together Glam Together 2021. The volunteer-led event will livestream hair and beauty tutorials from over 20 respected industry creatives on the event Instagram channel on 5th June to educate and empower supporters. 100% of all donations will go directly to the nominated charities.
Last year, the first event raised over £1400 for NHS Charities Together and Scottish Care in 2020. This year it is partnered with The Red Cross and Hair and Beauty Charity to help those affected by COVID 19.
Sam Grocutt, President of Hair & Beauty Charity said: “We are delighted to be involved with Stand Together Glam Together 2021. The COVID crisis has seen us become an essential lifeline to many in our industry – we saw an increase in 148% of requests for financial support last year and awarded an increase of 70% funds to beneficiaries, year on year. Now more than ever, the official industry charity is helping those who need it most.”
Caroline Hudson, fundraiser for The British Red Cross said: “It’s a tough time to ask for help. But our Red Cross charity shops have had to shut their doors, and most of our planned fundraising events are on pause or have had to be cancelled. For some, the burden of the pandemic’s impact has been building gradually and is now too heavy to manage alone. So that’s why we’re asking support for our appeal.
