Local hair salon, Headmasters hosted a fundraiser on Wednesday evening which raised over £1,000 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The staff at the Surbiton branch of Headmasters, 7 Victoria Road, held a raffle, gave complimentary consultations, and lessons in home hair styling,

Customers were asked for small donations towards the fund at the event which was joined by Kingston mayor, Patrick Codd.

The branch manager and franchise owner, Sian MacLaren said, “The aim is to raise as much money as we can for Great Ormond Street. We know that they need as much money as they can get.”

She said that they wanted to, “pull all of the local businesses and the community together to show that together they could raise money.”

Local businesses that supported the fundraiser included Prontaprint who printed the vouchers for the event, and Woodhouse Interiors who donated a £100, 7ft giraffe for a raffle prize. 

The HAIRraising campaign, which has already raised £600,000 was started in 2010 by various high-flyers in the hairdressing industry with a view to raising £1m towards Great Ormond Street operating theatres.

Sian Maclaren made history earlier this year when she became the youngest owner of a Headmasters franchise, as well as reaching the final of the Miss London competition in May.
