Gary & Michael Unite Their Two Big Passions for Charity

Thursday, 07 November 2019 10:08

Anyone who follows Gary Hooker and Michael Young on social media will know that their love of all things canine is comparable to their passion for hair.  No surprise then that their first-ever Hair and Hounds sponsored dog walk raised money for both The Hair and Beauty Charity and the Dogs Trust.

This pioneering pets and people walk attracted 310 legs – for those who don't like conundrums, that's 50 dogs and 55 humans. It was held at Exhibition Park Newcastle and raised a phenomenal £1,193.00.  In a bid to raise extra funds the Hooker and Young team had organised printed t-shirts reflecting The Hair & Beauty Charity colours of purple and sported pictures of either a British Bulldog or Great Dane with quiffs! 

“The team and our amazing clients really entered into the spirit of the event, we had incredible support with the venue, we sold t shirts that we had designed to raise extra funds,” explained Gary. “The t-shirts were made in colours of hair and beauty charity (purple) with two designs so people could choose either a logo of bulldog with a quiff or a Great Dane with a quiff.  Our area manager and mascot for the day even dressed up in a doggy body suit!  It was great to do this, and we are going to make it an annual event for these two deserving charities that are close to our hearts.”

“We are so grateful to the Hooker and Young team for their incredible energy in putting this event together,” added Sam Grocutt of the Hair and Beauty Charity. “It would be brilliant to see this become a national event as we know so many hairdressers are pet lovers too, so maybe this is the start of something big for Hair and Hounds.  We will make every penny count of our share of this generous donation to improving lives of hairdressers and their families.”
