Shaping Futures Smashes Fundraising Target

Wednesday, 15 August 2018 09:46

Schwarzkopf Professional’s charitable initiative, Shaping Futures, has broken its own fundraising target as its UK volunteers donate nearly £19,000 to help disadvantaged youngsters in Vietnam and the Philippines.

The group of eight stylists from across the UK were all asked to raise £1,500 each, however following months of curry nights, fancy dress events and sponsored silences, as well as donations from past volunteers, they have raised close to £4,000 more than originally asked, even before all the donations are officially in. 

 From now until the middle of September, the volunteers will be travelling to Vietnam and the Philippines in small groups, to help teach over 50 young people to cut, colour and style hair. Following the course, the young people will be offered additional training or positions within local hair salons, from which they’ll be able to build a life away from poverty.

Janet Maitland, UK Ambassador for Shaping Futures said: “I am just amazed by how fantastic this group is. Not only are they giving up their summer holidays to volunteer but they have raised so much money towards helping these young people, all of whom have experienced trauma and loss in the lives, build new futures for themselves. The volunteers are: (Vietnam) Jacqui Lowe, Lesley Maher; (Philippines) Janet Maitland (UK Ambassador), Annabelle Taylor, Lauren Scott, Raj Sethi Bamra, Indy Burmi, Barbara Deakin, Sarah Franklin.
