Top 5 Autumn Fundraisers

So it barely feels like we’ve had a summer in England with the constant bad weather –what more do we expect! – and sadly we only have a month left which means Autumn is nearing. However, that means there are some exciting events coming up – Halloween, Bonfire Night, and then the big one in winter which we’ll try and not talk about just yet. They’re all a great excuse to do something fun and raise money for your industry charity, here’s our top 5 autumn fundraisers.

Fashion week
If London can host their own fashion week, why can’t you? It doesn’t have to be a full on fashion show, ask your staff to dress to impress each day in return for a donation throughout 15th – 19th September to wow all your customers.

Halloween
Halloween is one of our favourites. Host a Halloween party in the salon running games, selling cakes and treats. With the help of other local businesses, we’re sure you can get some great prizes to offer for a trick or treat lucky dip! And make sure that everyone remembers to come in fancy dress.

Bonfire Night
Host your own Bonfire Night. Get help from local salons to organise a fundraising night of toffee apples, sparklers and fireworks! A fun night for everyone, with all proceeds going to a worthy cause, everyone will feel great knowing that they’ve done their bit!

Black Friday Deal
Slash your salon prices and donate the price difference to The Hairdressers’ Charity. This is an easy way to donate without having to put in loads of extra work!

One Hour, One Day

Here’s your chance to donate one hour of your day to your industry charity.

With over 300 applications a year, and 100 long term beneficiaries, it is crucial we raise as much money as possible to support hairdressers who need it most. With up to 270,000 people in the UK working in the hairdressing, barbering and beauty industry, if every single one of them got involved in our One Hour, One Day… well we can’t even imagine the results!

We know it’s difficult to find the time to plan, organise, and execute a successful fundraiser so we’ve made it super easy for every hairdresser to get involved – you just need to donate your time to us.

Join us on either Friday 29th  or Saturday 30th September 2017 in our One Hour, One Day of fundraising. For one hour on either date donate your time to Helping Hairdressers in Need. That simply means for all your hair appointments during that hour donate the sales to us – super-duper easy!  That could be starting that bit earlier or working later; even your lunch hour (if you have one!).

We’re also encouraging any hairdressing associated businesses to get involved. Even if you don’t spend your day cutting hair, you can easily join in by donating an hour of your own salary on either of the dates.

So which date will you choose? Let us know, and find out more information by emailing head@thehairdresserscharity.org or calling us on 01234 831888 so we can say thank you!
