Charlie Miller “Hair Angels” Show Off New Skills!

Friday, 08 September 2017 10:28
The Charlie Miller Hair Angels – a team of  five hairdressers, one trainee, a maintenance technician – recently  took part in the It’s A Knockout Edinburgh 2017 event, to raise funds for SANDS Lothians, a registered Scottish charity offering support, understanding and help both of a practical and emotional nature to bereaved parents and their families.
 
This massively popular UK event, organised by business organisation WeDo Scotland, took place at Duddingston Community Ground in Edinburgh and with skill and tactics high on their agenda the 8 superstars (Natalie Cole, Philip Michie, Euan Alexander, Neil Purves, Hayley Dallas, Leia Mackinnon, Frank Clark and Yvonne Blyth) successfully showed off their natural teamwork in The Teletubbie Challenge, The Cannon Run, The Foam Pit and The Ultimate Relay!
 
There was much fun and laughter to be heard throughout the day from the many family and friends who came along to support. From donations made in salon and on their Just Giving page the team are delighted to have raised just over £1,700 which provides more than 42 counselling sessions to the families that SANDS Lothians supports. Nicola Welsh, CEO SANDS Lothians commented: “We are so grateful to the amazing Charlie Miller Hair Angels for their participation in the ‘It’s a Knockout’ fundraising event. The team provided fun and energy to the day and really contributed to the event. They also looked fabulous dressed as teletubbies!  We were thrilled to hear about their incredible fundraising of £1,708.50. This will allow us to provide person centred care including befriending and counselling to families when their precious baby dies.  Parents need much support at this time and without support from the community we would not be able to continue to provide this”. 
 
SANDS Lothians is a registered Scottish charity offering support, understanding and help both of a practical and emotional nature to bereaved parents and their families who have suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth or whose baby dies soon after birth.
