Closing in November was a challenge, fitting in all our November appointments in December – which is the busiest month of the year for hairdressers!
As another lockdown ends, we are doing our best and certainly don’t want to disappoint anyone. We are still working under restricted conditions too.
A gentle reminder, if you feel unwell, even slightly, or anyone in your household is isolating, please call to re-schedule your appointment. We can only fit one client in per stylist for the whole of their appointment to avoid having too many people in the salon at any given time.
Some important news!
During the latest lockdown, one of our lovely stylists, Natalina, became involved with The Trussell Trust. They provide food for food banks so that people who lost their jobs through the pandemic, or other reasons, such as long term illness, can still eat. Poverty has no place in our society and we all need to take some responsibility and help out.
Any one of us could be affected at any time and no adult or child should ever go hungry.
Since March 2019, the need for food banks has risen 18% and 1.9million people had to use a food bank! The Trussell Trust works in partnership with other professionals to identify those in need. Teachers, social workers, doctors and health visitors all play a part. Once someone has been identified, vouchers are issued for food.
There are 40 thousand volunteers across the UK, who help out in various ways.
So, what can we do?
A simple and effective way of helping is to donate food items.
Food banks constantly need food, such as tins, jars, toiletries and non-perishable items.
Here at 77 The Hill, we are asking for donations and will be taking them to the nearest food bank regularly. Anything that you can spare will be put to good use and we will ensure your donations get to the right place. This is such an important charity, at any time of year but especially during this Christmas period.
If everyone donated just one tin, we would have over 200 in a week!
Look out for posters in the salon and we will be keeping everyone informed on our social media platforms.
Thanks in advance for your support, we are excited to get started!
