‘Manx Miracles’ is one step closer to reaching its £80,000 fundraising target thanks to the generosity of the staff and clients of ‘Salon 3’.
The Island’s leading hairdressing training salon recently presented a cheque for £1,106,16 to the charity, which staff chose as their ‘Charity of the Year’ last summer. The money has been raised through a number of specially planned events including ‘The Great Salon 3 Bake Off’, a ‘Victorian Christmas’ themed carol concert and Santa’s Grotto in December, and the Salon 3 ‘It’s A Blowout’ hair and beauty pamper day earlier this month. This event alone raised £644 for the charity.
The founders of ‘Manx Miracles’ are aiming to raise £80,000 to build a new Sensory Play Room at the Island’s Pre-School Assessment Centre in Pulrose. The facility supports a large number of families across the Isle of Man, providing an essential support service to them. The charity was launched by local mum, Louise Connor, whose son, Harrison, requires treatment there.
‘It’s A Blowout’ organiser and one of Salon 3’s Senior Stylists, Erin Bray, commented: “I speak for the entire Salon 3 team in saying a huge ‘thank you’ to our fantastic clients for their generosity in helping us to raise so much money for Manx Miracles. For personal reasons, children’s charities are very close to the hearts of a number of our staff and so it’s very important to us to support a cause which will help so many younger members of the Island community and their families for years to come. We’re already looking forward to planning our next fundraising event!”
Manx Miracles founder, Louise Connor, commented: “The fundraising work the Salon 3 team has undertaken to support Manx Miracles over the last three months has been inspirational, and I would like to thank the staff and their clients for their overwhelming generosity. This is a wonderful donation and means we are even closer to reaching our fundraising target. Without the effort made by companies such as Salon 3, the building of the new Sensory Play Room would not be possible.”
