On Friday night we had an amazing night! Let me tell you all about it.
We decided that it had been a wee while since we had a night in the salon and thought we needed one. We thought this would be a great excuse to raise money for a charity close to our hearts – Alzheimer Scotland. Alzheimer affects us all in one way or the other. We all know someone that has been affected by this horrible disease. It doesn’t just affect the elderly – more and more younger people are being diagnosed. So we thought was the best opportunity to raise money for them!
We had our very own Ann Currie Karaoke come into the salon to set up to make the party absolutely rocking! She really made the night a success. With the amazing log of songs she has and also getting us up and singing – including herself.
To help raise money on the night we had a raffle. We had so many people donate prizes. We are so grateful and astonished at the kindness of people.
Some of the prizes we had were a facial with Donna from Eros Beauty, Gel Polish from Sacha Nails, a Laura Mercier Bath Gift Set and plenty of bottles of various drinks. It went down a storm. With nearly everyone going home with a prize.
Zizzi’s donated food for the night along with a £50 voucher for the raffle. We are thankful for having such kind neighbours on the lane.
Everyone got up and sang. We had previously said we would stop at 10pm so that it gave us time to tidy up – but we kept going whilst everyone wanted to sing!
When counted last night after the raffle we had raised £195 – but we know more money as put in the bucket later on.
We are keeping the bucket in the salon until the end of the month if you would like to donate some money – please pop into the salon! In the salon we also have lovely Alzheimer Scotland Badges for £2 if you would like one of those!
