G&E McIntyre Raises Almost £5,000 for Charity

Tuesday, 21 August 2018 15:16

Northampton-based salon owners Gavin and Ella recently hosted a glittering fundraising ball to help raise funds for two charities closest to their hearts:  The Hairdressers' Charity and Meningitis Now.

With over 250 local businesses and hair industry representatives attending, including Errol Douglas MBE, Fellowship for British Hairdressing President Karine Jackson and The Hairdressers’ Charity co-President Samantha Grocutt, guests were treated to a spectacular event in an old aircraft hanger in the Aviator Hotel in Northampton. 

The evening was to raise funds for two worthwhile charities – the industry official charity The Hairdressers' Charity that both Gavin and Ella were keen to support and give back to hairdressers in need alongside Meningitis Now which is a charity very close to their hearts. Their 11 month old son, Bertie, was diagnosed with meningitis at just 5 weeks old and after many weeks of uncertainty and excellent care in their local hospital was given a clean bill of health. 

“After the fearful time we’d had with our son during his illness, Ella and I had talked about how we’d wanted to do something to give back to those who’d been there when we needed help,”  explains Gavin.  “It got us thinking about how much everyone enjoys a good party and what a giving industry and clientele we have and perhaps we could organise a fundraising ball to bring awareness and raise funds. We’ve been aware of The Hairdressers' Charity through our involvement in the Fellowship for British Hairdressers and reading about their good work in the trade press and thought it was the ideal opportunity to perhaps do something for two charities that are doing such great work for others."
