Rachel and Abbie Are On Their Marks!

Wednesday, 24 April 2019 13:45

Two of the girls from Q Hair and Beauty are ready for the off as they gear up for the Brighton Run2Music half marathon on Saturday, May 11: they're hoping to raise as much money as possible for charities close to their heart.

Hair stylist director Rachel Waller will be running in aid of the Uganda Lodge Community Project where she spent several weeks as a volunteer a year ago. The project has a school and housing for over 500 children aged between two and 16, as well as a medical centre, hair salon, sewing room, training restaurant and lodges. It urgently needs money to continue and develop its invaluable work. Joining Rachel on the run will be Q beauty therapist Abbie Hodge who will be raising funds for Dementia UK.

Neither of the girls, who work at both the Q salons in Chichester and Midhurst, have covered a half marathon distance before. Their decision to take part came about when they went out on a run together and after just two miles decided a sponsored effort would be a great idea to raise money for two very good causes. They are now training hard and so far have completed several seven-mile distances together, but know they have to focus on stepping up their stamina levels for the half marathon.

Friends and colleagues are right behind the fundraising effort and sponsoring Rachel and Abbie who have not set themselves a definite target other than successfully completing the distance and hopefully raising several hundred pounds for each charity.
